Sorry to hear of your loss.
I grew up across from the Epler’s on Prairie Rd.
Don always greeted me with a wave when I was outside, as well as the other family members.
Fond memory of him.

Janet and family - Ken was so thoughtful and caring of my Mom, his aunt Evelyn - he would call her every month or so in her later years to check on her and talk about their team - the Avalanche. My Mom loved to hear from him. I can see them now up there discussing the Ave's prospects for this year. God Bless him.... Pam
