I want to thank you for being a big part of your nephews lives since the day they were born. They loved building legos with you on Christmas and showing them how to play a game on an iPhone. Ranger will miss his walks with you too! You were your mom's caretaker up to the last day. I did my best to get you as comfortable as possible when you were home. I am glad to have known you and you will forever will be missed. Love you Uncle Donnie!!!

Don, you have touched my life in many ways. From the time we went to school to the present. I was blessed for having you in my life. We laughed and cried together. But all in all, we were the best of friends.
Mrs. Perron, you have a great and loving son. He was always there to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He never asked why. He just done it. May he Rest In Peace. Don, we all love you man. Go, be with God now. Until we meet again.

I feel greatly blessed to have had Don in my life since we were in high school. Thanks to him, I got what I consider my first two real jobs! We shared the love of midnight restaurants, DnD, movies, cars, ham radio, computers and God. His is a soul I am proud to have known for 4 decades. His dedication to work and family and the love he had for his brother and sisters and their kids was wonderfully infectious when when he spoke. To know Don was to know a friend, a confidant, a brother. Though I will miss teasing him about his old Chevy Monaz, I am forever grateful for having him in my life when it counted the most. My friend, until we meet again, 73 and SK.

I worked with Don periodically the entire time he was employed at Tech Data, and reading these posts, I can tell you that they all speak to what a talented, dedicated, and professional person he was. Let us remember him with fondness and warm memories. I salute you, Don.

Don worked for me at Tech Data on the production control team for ten years. He always was up to the task and did a stellar job. He was a kind person that got along with everyone. I always thought of him as family rather than an employee. May you Rest In Peace.

I worked with Don for many years at Tech Data. He was always eager to help anybody that ever needed his help. I went to him on many occasions for assistance and he always would torment me in his own Don way since I did it to him so often. But after that he did whatever it was. I traveled with him to Disaster Recovery several times and he would go 36 hours with no sleep to get the restores going. Many DR's would not have been successful if not for Don.

I worked with Don at Tech Data for many years. I was very sad to hear of his passing. Don was as reliable and steadfast as they come. No one ever had to worry Don getting the job done, it was a given. His work was quality and beyond reproach. He was a true professional who never wavered. I personally don’t ever recall Don becoming emotional or succumbing to the pressure of his job (and there was often a lot of pressure). He was obviously very loyal to his company and to his friends, especially Glen Rugg who you could find sitting with Don each and every day for lunch and various company events. I know Glen is hurting as much as any family member right now and I extend my condolences to all of you who are suffering his passing. We will all miss him.
