Don was a pediatric nurse at St. Luke’s for 35 years, where he touched the lives of countless children and their families. Throughout his life Don devoted much of his time to helping children and others.
Since 1978, he served as volunteer director of Camp Hodia, a camp for children with diabetes located at Alturas Lake in the Sawtooth Mountains.
Don also gave much of his time as a medical volunteer in faraway places such as Africa, Pakistan, and Bangladesh in responding to natural disasters such as earthquakes and famine. Don would often find himself leaving on a moment’s notice and being gone for weeks helping others across the world.
In 2005, while in Pakistan to help earthquake victims, Don said he was struck at the strong faith of the people to go on with life. He called his experience of helping others as “feeling more alive than at any other time.”
“Don truly lived in service of others,” said Chris Roth, St. Luke’s Treasure Valley CEO. “Don will be greatly missed, yet his spirit lives on in the thousands of children he has supported, provided hope to, and healed.”
Funeral arrangements for Don are pending.
