            Don was born April 12, 1946 to Edwin and Mabel Chittenden in San Antonio, Texas. He grew up in San Antonio and in Bellaire, and in 1978 he settled in Sargent.  Don was a proud resident of Sargent and loved his community. He was a kind and honest man who always wore his signature smile no matter what. That smile will be dearly missed by all.

In 1979, Don began his 40 year career at Jackson Electric Cooperative. He began as a lineman and then became a self-taught computer technology specialist.
