In 1995 we bought a cottage in the Port Sanilac area. Among the first people we met were our next door neighbors, Don and Marilyn. We have been neighbors for 25 years and we could not ask for better people to have live next door. We will miss Don and hope that we will continue to see Marilyn often. May God hold Don gently in the palm of His hand! With our sincerest condolences, Patti and Tom

I worked with Don many years ago at Michigan Bell. After he retired in 1997 we continued to go to lunch every Tuesday for the next 23 years as recently as early March before the virus came and restaurants were shut down. We played golf, went to the casino, Red Wing games or up north at the cottage sitting by the water. Don would always call to see how I was doing even when he was in the hospital. He was a great and caring friend who will be truly missed.
