Don Before CBS

Veteran Don Sladek working on Edwards Air Force Base rocket site test stand.  Located on the front right.

Don was born coordinated and extremely strong. He owned a plastering company in his younger days. He was able to shovel 140 tons of sand in a day to feed the plastering gun and do it day after day. But then, they had to make him take a break so the machine could catch up. 


Don also had a top-secret clearance at Edwards Air Force Base and was responsible for quality assurance at the rocket site test stand.  His employers widely respected Don’s caution and precision.


Don loves being outside.  He could stand upright in a boat with five clamoring grandsons, all wanting him to tie their lines, bait their hooks in 100 degrees, and never lose his balance or even break a sweat.
