Don would come to Eclectic, Al and pitch horseshoes with us. He was truly a sweet, soft spoken man who could pitch many ringers. He also spent much time pitching with one of our junior pitchers and helped him learn how to pitch better. He will truly be missed at our horseshoe pitching venue by all of us.

Vickie and family,
Don was loved by everybody. We all had a good time at M&H working together. Mike and all the guys were great friends. It is heartbreaking to lose Don. He is healed now and God has an angel in His choir with a beautiful voice. May God bless you and all the family.
With love and prayers
Mike & Linda Austin
