They were married on May 15, 1954, and started their life and family together in Brooklyn. After retirement, Donald and Dolores retired to Clearwater Beach, Florida. In 1999, they returned to the tri-state area to be closer to their family, and settled in Lincroft, New Jersey.
Before retirement, Donald worked Security for Bankers Trust Company in New York, New York, for many years. He was also a proud United States Army Veteran, having served our country during the Korean War. Donald was an avid Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Mets, Giants, and Rangers fan, and always enjoyed happy hour and a mug of iced cold beer.
