Donald was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica on August 20, 1895. He came to Toronto with his nanny and two brothers in 1905. His mother and sister Winnifred had arrived the year before. He was still living there at the time of his enlistment in July of 1917; his brothers Harold and Kenneth also served in the army. Don was blind in his right eye due to a childhood injury and therefore served only in Canada. In 1922, Don filed on a homestead at SE 17-72-12-W6.
