Donald was ordained as a Baptist minister on February 19, 2017. He said â€śThere wasnâ€™t guidance counselors when I was in school, I wish that there would had been. I may have found my way to college. I thought only rich people were able to go to college. Now that I look back there were probably things that I might have done differently; but had I not moved to Woodward and went to work in the oil field, I wouldnâ€™t have the three wonderful children and the three grandchildren that I haveâ€ť.
He was involved in FFA while in high school and he loved watching the Oklahoma Sooners and the New Orleans Saints. He also enjoyed gardening and being with his family.
