    Don was born on October 3, 1925 in Neenah, Wisconsin, the oldest son of eight children born to Arnold Roy and Veronica (Lehrer) Sewall. Upon turning 18, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy during his senior year at Menasha High School. He served our country in the Pacific during World War II aboard the LST 580.

    After the war, Don attended Wisconsin Institute of Technology and the Missouri School of Mines (University of Missouri - Rolla) and earned a bachelor's degree in mining engineering. In 1950, he began his career as an engineer in Idaho and after a year moved to Texas to continue his career. There he met Evelyn Ann Routh, his loving bride of 59 years.

    In June of 1955, the couple moved to Hillsboro where Don began his 20 year career with the Texas Highway Department.
