Donn was a veteran of the United States Air Force, and a member of the Iowa Army National Guard. He served in the Air Force during the Korean War, from February 1951-January 1955, as a Statistical Services Supervisor, with he rank of Master Sergeant.

After Donn completed service to his country, he spent many years in the railroad and trucking industry.

He once told his wife, his favorite job in all his years of working was with the young men and women in the ROTC program. He enjoyed guiding them through the program, and watching them earn their Second Lieutenant Bars at graduation. It gave him so much pride knowing he had a hand in shaping their futures.
He loved music of the 1940s and the Big Band era. Donn also loved ballroom dancing with his wife, Paula. He enjoyed fishing and hunting. Because of his love of pheasant and quail hunting, he spent twenty years breeding and raising English Springer Spaniels. He was known in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin for his wonderful hunting dogs.
