I worked with Don when we both worked in logistics for Raytheon Technical Service Company providing support service for NASA in Greenbelt and Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Don was a good friend who always had a smile and a cheerful attitude. He was greatly missed when he left Raytheon to pursue his career. A good man!
