(1932 - 2002)
Don Stanbro was a popular businessman in the mountain area who became the fourth area resident to serve as Jefferson County Commissioner.
Born and raised in Springville, NY, Don joined the U.S. Navy out of high school. He graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in political science in 1958 and went to work in New York City.
He and his wife, Bonnie, lived in Yonkers, NY; Duxbury, MA; Canandaigua Lake, NY and Monmouth Hills, NJ.
Bonnie said, “Don grew tired of corporate life.” Enchanted by the scenes in a Warren Miller ski film, they moved to Colorado in 1967.
Don worked for the Van Schaack Real Estate office in Evergreen from 1968 until 1974, when he opened his own business: Stanbro Real Estate and subsequently had several branches. The motto was: “We Love Evergreen!”
