Mr. O’Gara was a legend at Dunham Park growing up. I was sorry to hear of his passing. Thoughts and prayers to Chris and Pat.

We met Don and Pat thru Kathy and Howard Feddema, being neighbors of theirs in Wisconsin. Great laughs were always the rule shared during the many pontoon boat rides, over dinners, football talk, whatever — even going to a snow shoe baseball game to cheer on their family. They joined us for Super Bowl one year (no he didn't root for the Packers), and we enjoyed many great times with them at the beach in Venice, Florida watching the sun set along with Howard and Kathy.
Don brought a genuinness and kindness to our lives, with a smile that will remain in our hearts. God Bless You Pat

Uncle Butch was the rock we all counted on. His legacy will live on in all of us. We will be strong because that's what he taught us to do. RIP Uncle Butch, you will never be forgotten.
