Survived by: Daughter Suzin Webb, Vestal, NY; Son in Law Dr. Edward Parker, Burr Ridge, IL; Grandsons Ryan, Colin, and Quinn Parker, Burr Ridge, IL; Mother in Law Mildred Cardone, Johnson City, NY; Brother and Sister in Law Gerald and Constance Collins, Binghamton, NY; Sister in Law Sandra Cardone, Binghamton, NY; Nephews Mark Collins, Columbus, OH and Nathan Seder, Alexandria, VA; and Nieces Dr. Christine DaSilva, Ormond Beach, FL and Kayley Seder, Brooklyn, NY. Expressions of sympathy in his memory may be made to the Vestal Youth Football League P.O. Box 1071 Vestal, NY 13850 or other youth sports organization. Born February 15, 1938, Donald spent his childhood in Buffalo, NY and attended Kenmore High School, graduating in 1956. He went on to graduate from Ithaca College in 1960 with a degree in communications. He served as a Green Beret in the United States Army, where he taught propaganda theory, and later became an educator at the Columbia School of Broadcasting in New York City, where he also was a professional DJ. He married Carin Cardone of Binghamton, NY, and they had two daughters, Carin (Carrie), and Suzin. The family moved to Binghamton in 1970, and it remained Donald’s home for the rest of his life. Donald continued to work in the field of communications at several local radio and television stations and eventually became a sales person, retiring from FOX 40. Known for his strong and distinct voice, he did many radio and television commercials. He was also an announcer for the Triple Cities Jets. He was inducted into the Southern Tier Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2013. While he enjoyed success professionally, Donald was also involved in the community. He volunteered as a coach for the Vestal Youth Football League for over 25 years and later coached at Johnson City and Seton Catholic High Schools. Respected and adored by all, Donald coached hundreds of kids who went on to become exemplary young men. He often served as a mentor and role model both at work and in his coaching. Donald was a sports fan at all levels, supporting youth, college, and professional athletes alike. He especially loved his Buffalo Bills and New York Mets. Family, friends, and colleagues will also remember his sense of humor, his sincerity, and his love.
A Memorial service will be held Saturday 11:30 am from the Allen Memorial Home, 511-513 East Main Street, Endicott. Reverend David Grate will officiate. The family will receive friends at the Allen Memorial Home Saturday 10 am until service time at 11:30 am.

How sad that I learned so much about Don's life here, though working so many years with him at WBNG-TV, though he often spoke proudly about his family. Don always had an incredible attitude and I enjoyed talking with him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Armando Tiny Paolucci & Michael Paolucci share in your sadness. He was loved by all the staff & youth he coached. He will be deeply missed. He loved coaching youth and he remembered everyone of his players by name. We always started our games with the saying "It's time to pay the Bills"

Dear Suzin and Family: I worked with "Donnie" as I used to call him at Fox 40 for several years. He used to crack up when I would call him that! He was a true gentlemen and a just the best all around great guy. He always had a funny story to tell and had the most upbeat attitude no matter what. I loved his jokes and hi sense of humor and especially his laugh! God broke the mold when He made Don. I am so sorry for your loss and I know he is going to be sorely missed. I will keep you and Don in my prayers. My deepest condolences, Rosemary Gaeta
