Don was born on October 23, 1939 in Morrison to Ralph and Sarah (Rogers) Domdey. He was a 1957 Morrison High School graduate. On December 14, 1956 he was united in marriage to Barbara J. Temple at the Morrison United Methodist Church, where he was a member for over 60 years. He was a current member of Ebenezer Reformed Church. Don worked at General Electric in the prototype shop as a model maker from 1961 until his retirement in 2000. He was very creative and enjoyed building things in general. Some of his handiwork included boats, recumbent bikes and lapsteel guitars. He also honed his woodworking skills by building bookshelves for Darel, a cradle for Ashley and rocking chairs for Dani and Olivia. He enjoyed music, fishing, camping, golfing and for over 20 years he wintered in Florida. Don made many new friends while in Florida, including a neighbor that also enjoyed building things. The two of them were known as the “saw-dust twins”. He was very witty and was as a “jack of all trades, master of puns”. His family and friends will miss his great sense of humor.

Survivors include his wife, Barb; one daughter Sara (Mike Smith) Domdey of Oak Park, IL; one son, Darel Domdey of West Burlington, IA; three grandchildren, Ashley Domdey, Danelle Domdey and OIivia Smith; four great grandchildren, Noah, Isayah, Aubrie and Emery.

Don was preceded in death by his parents; a son, Craig Domdey; three sisters, Audrey Temple, Meredith Renkes and Betty Hall; one brother, Kenneth Domdey.
