In November 2016, Don was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. From that point, he fought every minute of every day for the chance to spend one more day with his beloved wife, family, friends and pets. He was a huge car fan whether that meant doing a rebuild, tinkering with a motor, racing in a demolition derby, or participating in a car show. One of his favorite vehicles was a 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak. He enjoyed traveling and made numerous trips to Mexico. Don also loved fishing and doing anything outside.

Don is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife, Kelly Duff-Morgan; siblings, Mary, Chuck, Whitney and Trude; his wife’s family; and his fur babies. Don was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Tim.
