I got to know Don through work and I always appreciated his pleasant attitude and calm disposition.  In my interactions with Don he always carried Christ-like confidence and  gentleness.  My deepest sympathies for your loss and sincere prayer that one day you will be reunited in Glory.  Jack Kennedy

Don was a very nice gentleman. We had the pleasure of working with him for many years.
He always brought “sunny weather” whenever he visited.
 
He will be missed. You have our deepest condolences.
