Donald was the second child of Avery and Pearl Fisk. At the age of 16 he enlisted into the US Navy. There he served on several ships from the smallest USS Essex to the largest. He is a plank owner from the USS Sarratoga. Don learned to be a barber in the Navy and practiced it until the late 60's...he even taught barbering to prisoners in the Ft. Ann, NY prison. Don had the gift of gab and could talk to anyone!! He loved to party and most of all to laugh!! I miss him everyday...
Don married Ann Brown in Whitehall, NY and together they had a daughter and 2 sons, Susan, Brian, & James.
He passed away in Florida from either COPD or a heart ailment.
