It did not matter if we were at a meeting or at a holiday function, Don always brought the fun! He has been such an integral and wonderful part of C&I Engineering for so many years. He will be sorely missed! Michelle, we will be keeping you and your extended family in our prayers.

Don was very instrumental in my life, he lived next door to me growing up on Woodford place. I have so many memories of Don, Linda, and Dick. Playing basketball non-stop, football, attending Louisville Colonel games, and loads of other memories I cherish of Don. I am sorry we didn’t get to spend time later in life but growing up next door to you was invaluable. Rest In Peace my dear old friend. I am sorry I will be unable to attend your service but I will all in my prayers. Love Nancy Lehn

I am so saddened by this news. For 19 1/2 years I saw him almost everyday, Mon. thru Friday at the Nibble Niche. He was always so bubbly and outgoing, and generous. Always giving us tickets to the track, coming in with lottery tickets, and always with the biggest smile!! I pass by his house several days a week, and say hi or wave whenever I see him out. I am proud to call him my friend. I've had the opportunity to meet Michelle as well, and my heart goes out to her and his family. He will surely be missed.
