He was born to Edgar and Grace Hiltz (Roy) of Annapolis on March 3, 1922. He was the last of six children. The family moved to Kentville where his father was employed with the D.A.R. Don received his education at Kings County Academy, Acadia University, and the N.S. Technical College. He found employment, as a student engineer, with the D.A.R. (CPR) in Kentville then moved to Saint John, NB as Assistant to the Divisional Engineer. After subsequent moves with CPR to Sherbrooke and Montreal, Quebec, Don was transferred back to Kentville as Divisional Engineer and was to be promoted to London, Ontario.

He was a charter member of the Dukes of Kent, a member of the Anglican Church where he was a choir and council member for many years, President of the Rotary Club, and President of the Senior Citizens Committee. Upon retirement from Hiltz & Seamone he enjoyed playing golf with his buddies and spent part of his winters in Sarasota. His many blessings in life were spent with his son, Ridgely and his wives, Marion, Josephine, and Brenda, all who predeceased him. He is survived by his grandsons, Nicholas and Nathan (Alina); great grandchildren, Taylor, Janna, Kellen, and Linden; daughter-in-law, Elaine Howatt; stepchildren, Pat Holmes (Neil) and Bob Maybank (Natalie) and families; along with many special nieces and nephews.
