He entered this life on June 29, 1941 in Madison. Born at home, he was the loving son of the late John Lawrence “Jack” and Lillian Bessie Scholl Firth. Basketball, the king of Hoosier sports, created a lot of fond memories, as well as milestones, for the 1960 graduate of Madison High School. Under the tutelage of head Coach Julius Bud Ritter and Assistant Coach Ed Orrill, the Cubs went undefeated two seasons and earned semi-state honors Don’s junior and senior year. Because of the coaches’ insight into Don’s ability, the owner of Jersey #44 received a basketball scholarship to the University of Houston. Although his roundball achievements spanned states and arenas, Don certainly revered two elite distinctions. Madison Coach Bud Ritter named him to his “all time greats” team. And the second honor entailed Don’s image on the wall mural at the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. After basketball, he graduated from the Indiana University School of Business, and Don’s life took a diverse but very productive, positive turn. He served in the Indiana Army Reserves for 10 years and was honorably discharged. On July 16, 1972, Don was united in marriage to Linda Sue Underwood at the Kent United Methodist Church. A daughter, Donnemarie, and two sons, Joseph Donald and Andrew David, blessed this happy union of 46 years. He worked early in life at Williamson Heater and the Jefferson Proving Ground, both in the Madison area. He retired from ICI Americas Inc. in Charlestown after 20 years of service as head of ammunitions and stores foreman. At Kent United Methodist Church where he was a longtime member, Don also served as Sunday School superintendent and chairman of the Board of Trustees. Although he put away his basketball gear decades ago, Don continued to love his Madison Cubs. He also adored watching old westerns, supporting his children and grandchildren in their sporting events and listening to music. A devoted husband, loving dad and proud papaw, Don treasured his family heritage and lineage. In his later years, he and Linda spent numerous Sundays sitting and visiting with friends on the riverfront. From childhood through adulthood, Don and the rolling Ohio River always bonded. And Don too never forgot his growing up years on West Main Street and the close friendships forged there with the West End Gang,
