But he most enjoyed playing golf. Don graduated from the University of Dayton where he co-opted with General Motors Corporation’s accounting department. He worked for GM his entire career. Don is preceded in death by his parents, Norris and Leona Sponsler and his wife, Irene. He is survived by his daughter and her husband Douglas and Vicki (Sponsler) Stephens, his son John Sponsler, and granddaughter, Stephanie Stephens. Don was a kind, loving, and generous husband and father and the best Grandfather anyone could ever have. But most importantly, Don was a very good man.
