Don was born on December 7, 1924 in Detroit, Michigan, one of eight children born to Arthur and Florence (nee. Wall) Fitzgerald. Following his service in Korea with the United States Army, Don married the “girl across the street”, Mary Sinagra, and together raised five children. He enjoyed spending time with his family, cooking, boating, gardening, camping, traveling, hiking trails in metro-parks and playing his grand piano. He enjoyed do-it-yourself projects and built two intricate dollhouses. Don was a gracious host and enjoyed opportunities to welcome and entertain family and friends in his home for parties and holidays.
