President, Principal and Founder

Don works out of the Colorado office of WMS Financial Group L.L.C. located in Parker, Colorado.  He works with individuals from a wide array of backgrounds but has had a specialty focus on the funeral services industry since 1994.  He has earned the Accredited Investment Fiduciary™ professional designation awarded by the Center for Fiduciary Studies in the Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburg, in Pittsburgh, PA. 

Don grew up in the Williams Funeral Home, a family owned business started by his father in 1937 in Idaho Falls, Idaho.  After attending Utah State University he graduated from the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science in 1973 where he earned the Mu Sigma Alpha award.  Upon graduation he returned to assume the management and ownership of the family business.  He successfully operated the business until 1984 when he was approached and sold the business now known as the Coltrin Mortuary and Crematory.  Don has been a licensed Mortician in the State of Idaho since 1973 and holds license number M-591. 

After working with this successor firm and running a successful general construction business  in Idaho Falls, Don moved his family to Colorado to begin a financial services career in 1988.  He is now a 24 year veteran of the securities industry.  He has helped to establish several state association pre-need Master Trusts where he still provides investment management services.  Since 2003 he has worked on the creation and establishment of Director’s Select Retirement Plan, a nationally approved 401(k) and profit sharing plan designed exclusively for the funeral industry. Director’s Select Retirement Plan was created to give every funeral home regardless of size the opportunity to establish a 401(k) and/or profit sharing plan with the same benefits, advantages and low operating expenses usually associated with plans available to only the largest companies.
