Don attended and graduated from Estherville High School before working on the family farm. He married Marjorie Smith on Dec. 31, 1947, at the First Christian Church, Estherville. To this union four sons were born: Larry, Jim, Bruce and Dave. Don lived and farmed in the Wallingford area all his life. Marge passed away on Oct. 16, 1995. Don continued to live on the farm until moving to Windsor Manor in Estherville in 2015. In May of 2019, he became a resident of Good Samaritan Society in Estherville.

He was a member of the First Christian Church, the ELKS, and Farm Bureau. In his free time, Don could be found playing cribbage or rummy, or dancing with Marge. Don also enjoyed his annual Canadian Fishing trips.

He is survived by his sons, Larry (Connie) Richard, Jim (Diane) Richard, Bruce Richard, and Dave (Connie) Richard, eight grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, his brother, Wayne (Norma) Richard and good friend, Betty Dawson.
