About Don

I was born in California, but lived most of my younger years in Wheaton, IL. I've been an employee of Wheaton College since 1982, where I worked several different positions within the physical plant before coming up to HoneyRock. My wife, Denise, and I have been married since 1985 and have two adult children, Keri and Ryan. I work with the Site and Facility team at HoneyRock. 

I grew up in a loving, Christian home and gave my life to the Lord as a young man at a Christian summer camp in northern IL. I have been on a journey towards Christ for a long time and have had countless Christians pouring into me and encouraging me along the way. 

The best part of working at HoneyRock is knowing that my job is not just managing a fleet, maintaining buildings, and caring for the grounds, but using all of those tasks as tools to build into the young people who work with me. That's what makes my job pleasurable. Another aspect of my role here that brings a lot of joy is working with the many friends of HoneyRock; volunteers, donors, and alumni. I enjoy building friendships with many people along the way of stewarding this place. It takes many hands to keep this small part of the Wheaton College campus moving well. HoneyRock is blessed with many people who have been impacted toward our loving God and choose to stay involved here to help others have that opportunity, and because God continues to meet them here.
