Donald, known to family and friends as “Ray” was a lifelong resident of Lynn, MA and graduated from Lynn English High School. He served in the Army from 1954 to 1956 as a Private First Class during the Korean War, stationed in France. He married Marlene in 1957 with whom he had four children. While raising his family and working fulltime as an accountant, Donald went to night school for many years, proudly earning a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Northeastern University. Throughout his career, he employed his accounting skills at several commodity trading companies, Gibbs Oil, Astroline Corp, and BP Sousa.
