As well as the croft and weaving work he was Postmaster, Post bus driver and assistant janitor at Uig School and also custodian of many community funds. He was an elder of the Church of Scotland, Miavaig, also congregational treasurer.

For the past sixteen years of his life Donald Angus had to undergo renal dialysis, first at Raigmore Hospital and then Western Isles Hospital, a regime he endured with patience.

Donald Angus was married with a son and daughter.
