Read more... Donald Thomas Dalbec was born on March 22, 1941 in Wakefield, Michigan to Erville and Lillian Dalbec, joining two brothers and five sisters. As a young boy he grew to love horses, helping his father farm and log timber with their team of work horses, Duke and Brady. By the time Don reached his teenage years, the family had moved west to Crescent City. Riding his favorite horse “Red,” he had covered every inch of Del Norte County seeking all sorts of mischief with his pals and discovering all the good fishing holes. As a teenager, Don always had a job spending his money fixing up cars, including his prize ride, a 1958 Chevy, 2-door Impala convertible. Don attended Crescent Elk Elementary and graduated from Del Norte High School in 1960. It was there, at Del Norte High, he met the love of his life, Sharon Ross.

Don and Sharon were married in Crescent City on Feb. 26, 1961. Together they raised a son Ron, and two daughters Dawn Michelle and Kristi. Don was a resourceful father and devoted family man, giving freely to his kid’s interests. If he wasn’t racing motorcycles, fishing or hunting with Ron, he was riding horses with his daughters; teaching them everything about horsemanship. He spent countless hours in his garage keeping the family machinery going and remodeling the house on many occasions. Family tradition each summer was camping up the Smith River or Chetco River with family and friends. He loved the years living up the Winchuck on “the ranch.”
