Landscape Architecture degree at Syracuse College of environmental Science and Forestry 1952

Worked for the NYS Dept. of Transportation – landscape design for NYS Thruway and other public works

Joined Earl Grever, Landscape Architect firm (established 1939) and became partners in 1959. The first cemetery planning work was in 1940 for the Diocese of Buffalo, who remains a client 78 years later.

Mr. Grever retired in 1972. Don took up flying which allowed him to travel easier and began specializing in cemetery design as a result.

The firm offers cemetery planning services including Master Planning (new cemeteries and expansions), site construction planning, section design and layout, cremation garden design and landscaping plans and specifications.

Don was a licensed Landscape Architect in several states and an active member of many cemetery associations including OCA, ACA (American Cemetery Association- later ICCFA), NECA (New England Cemetery Association) NYSAC (New York Cemetery Association) MBNA (Monument Builders of North America). Planning cost sharing programs were offered for years through the Barre Granite Association, the Elberton Granite Association and Monument Builders of North America to assist smaller cemeteries with affordable design and section layout.
