I’m so blessed that I got to know Don when I would sometimes go with Marsha to visit him. He seemed to enjoy the beach life. But I know he missed friends and family in West Virginia. One day we stopped by and he took a dance lesson to learn shag dancing, the dance of South Carolina.

Curt and Marsha helped him a lot and I know he appreciated that.

Our thoughts and prayers for the family. Sandra and Ron Maierhofer.

I’ve known Don since we were teenagers when I became best of friends with his sister, Joy, and later, his younger sister, Marsha. I observed the ups and downs of his life, but he always seemed to embrace the good times and accepted the bad times. He fought a valiant battle against cancer and is now reunited with his Mom, Janet, and sister, Joy. My husband, Mike, and I send our deepest condolences to Don’s family. Mike and I were reminiscing about Don and Mike recalled one sweet story of how Don asked him to take pictures at his wedding to Carol. Mike had just gotten a new camera and he was more than happy to be Don’s amateur photographer. Thankfully, the pictures turned out well! 😇
