His grandchildren always said, “Pop-Pop can fix anything.” He also enjoyed going to the beach and camping, especially camping trips with the Lansdowne United Methodist Church, where he was a lifelong member. Don was an avid music lover and a forever Elvis fan. He was a kind and compassionate man of integrity who was always willing to lend a helping hand.

Don was preceded in death by his father, Russell, his mother, Hellen, and his brother, Richard. He was the beloved husband of Lila Disney (nee Harvey); devoted father of Stephanie Sanidas and her husband Nick; Debra Johnson, and her husband Kevin; and Dr. Jennifer Leigh Disney, and her husband Mike; loving grandfather of Chris, Lindsay, Bobby, Lukas, and Michael.
