The Munro family moved to 10 King St., Wilmington in the late 1930s, and Don attended Wilmington public schools. His youth revolved around boating and skating on Silver Lake. Don subsequently enlisted in the Navy in 1952 and served admirably in the Korean War aboard the destroyer USS Strong. He was honorably discharged in 1955.

Don went on to work at the Bedford VA in 1957. During this period, he was instrumental in solving a 1983, Boston murder case. He retired in 1989 as the Chief of Police. After retirement, Don worked part time for the Federal court in Boston as a special deputy Marshall. He was assigned to the court security division until 2003.
