Don was proud to be a retired firefighter at the Vienna Air Base for 28 years. He also served in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and was a retired school bus driver for Western Reserve Schools.
Don’s hands and feet were rarely still as he worked tirelessly his entire life paving his own way for himself and his family.
He was a tough, stubborn Irish man who never left work for another day. He was always finding a project to keep busy with or a job that needed done.
He enjoyed golfing, working on his farm, being outdoors and most importantly spending time with his beloved family.

Don’s legacy will live on in his grandchildren, CJ, Caleb, Sydni, Gavin and Victoria. All of whom he cherished deeply. He leaves behind his two sisters, Donna Cannon and Patty Bettura both of Columbiana, Ohio, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Don was proceeded in death by his parents, Ashford and Irene Quinn.
Don had many roles throughout his life but was always a dedicated husband and father first and foremost. He treasured his wife, his children and his grandchildren and embraced every moment with them as they did with him. He especially loved his role as Papa.
