I have been Don's neighbor since 1987. In fact he was the first neighbor to introduce himself. Don was a talker who loved to chat.
He was a good man also. Our home was a fixer upper at the time we bought it and still is.
We moved to Beaverceek in the middle of July and it was very hot and humid. Our house at the time had no AC and with 3 kids we did have lots of money back then. Don gave us a window air conditioner which made the heat bearable!
My condolences to June and his family.
