After retirement from teaching in May 2012 he joined the Texas State Guard and completed the Citizens Police Academy in League City. Fulfilling his lifelong desire, he applied and was accepted as a Cadet for the League City Volunteer Fire Department. Donald was a parishioner of St. Mary's Catholic Church and a long standing 4th degree Knights of Columbus. He was an active member of the Galveston Historical Foundation where he researched the rich Galveston County history. Donald was instrumental in gaining official designation of numerous historical landmarks.

Mize; daughter, Stacey Mize and her sons, Jordan and Connor; two stepsons, Keith and James Kahanek; mother, Ona Elizabeth Mize; brother, James "Jimbo" Mize and his children, Michelle and Chris; sister, Rebecca Mize and her children, Zachary and Nicolette; four cousins, Brett, Bob and Bill and Virginia; many other relatives and friends.

Don will be truly missed. As a coworker at Clearview Education Center, he was always there to help anyone who needed it. I truly enjoyed working with him and will always remember his dedication to his students, family and staff. God Bless you and your family

Don was a good man and extremely loyal. I worked with Don for many years at CCISD and remember his dedication to his students. After retirement he worked at the YMCA in League City and was always so friendly and helpful. You will be missed!
