I met Don when he started working for the housing office in Guantanamo Bay. He always had a joke and a smile. You could hear his laugh down the hall. He was a good friend and I loved the time I worked with him. So thankful to have known him.

We met Don and Stacy in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba back in 2015, it was a pleasure knowing Don. We were new to the island and were quickly welcomed into their home with many nights with fun, food, laughter, and an occasional game Phase 10. Rest In Peace Don... Fair Winds and Following Seas

My loving son and I were curled on his bed watching the Army Navy game. They were playing in the fog and neither of us could keep up with the ball but we had a good time just being together. That’s one time and then along came an Alabama (Roll Tide) game and there we were fussing but enjoying the game and the time we had together. He will always be in my heart. I love you and miss you.

I met you and Stacey for the first time in Guantanamo Bay, and you both are amazing people. You will truly be missed, and the world is a far poorer place without you in it. I hope you are in fiddlers green. Rest In Peace brother. Fair winds and following seas.

... I only met Don once but he made a good and lasting impression upon me. He was a kind hearted fella who seemed as good on the inside as he seemed outwardly. He and Stacy brought their dogs with them when they visited me which proved their love for animals and commitment to making this a better Earth to live upon not just for their fellow men but animals as well .... My condolences to Stacy, and All who loved this good man ! He will be sorely missed... Rest In Peace brother Don 🙏🙏🙏
