We are so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He was a "stand up individual" and would do anything for you. Don was very special to my parents and he and Linda were true to the end to their Uncle Don and aunt Dorothy; Always visiting them throughout the years and calling to make sure they were OK. I remember most of those visits and remember the time Don lived with us . He was so genererous and always positive. Our sympathies go out to Linda and family.

Don Was a Great Man and a Friend. He taught me all the basics about semi trailers and we had a great time traveling on business together, some 30 years ago. I will always remember the good times I had with Don. My best wishes to his family in their time of grief.
