Donald was born in Topeka, Ks. to the late Louis and Rachel Hodgson. The family moved to Manhattan, Ks. when Donald was young. His interest in animals started early as he grew up on a dairy farm.

After graduating he joined a practice in Wymore, Ne. and in 1958 moved to Wetmore, Ks. where he had a mixed animal practice for many years. Upon retiring Donald and Betty traveled around the country in a motor home and lived in Phoenix, Az. and Branson, Mo.
