Don Pat Descant

1948-2012

My history with M.D. Descant, Inc. began soon after my father established his business in the mid-1960's. I was employed, shovel in hand, as an apprentice during the summer months of my high school/college years. Under the watchful eyes of several experienced superintendents, my "on-the job" training became a firm foundation for my future career in building construction. As the company grew in size and scope, my responsibilities increased with time. Working with my father, and eventually all 3 of my brothers, I was named president of the corporation in 1996. The challenge of maintaining a successful family business was one I embraced with humble appreciation and determination. I proudly served in this capacity for the remainder of my life.
