Don married Catherine Edelman in Mullen, Nebraska in 1972. The couple made their home in Cozad where they raised their three daughters, Dana, Shanna and Krista. Don farmed with his brother and dad for many years while also being a member of the Plum Creek Riding group.

He enjoyed boating and skiing with his girls, wood working, shopping to make Cap crazy, and was an avid golfer with his daughter Dana and anyone that wanted to go hit a few rounds. He was preceded in death by his parents; grandson, Gaven Kasson; granddaughter, Kennetha Dillon; daughter, Shanna Dillon; and brother, Bob Dillon.
