May light perpetual shine upon this gentle man of God whose life and love was shared by all of us who were fortunate enough to have Don pass through our lives. Having spent precious time with this man, I witnessed his steadfast love of God, Country and family. His character and values never wavered and his wonderful sense of humor was always ready when called for. I thank God for the memories of this man that I will always cherish.

Don was not just an excellent engineer but he offered much-needed levity throughout his career. Affectionately known as "The Master of Mirth" at Amoco he was a pleasure to work and spend time with. As a Bulldog myself I was concerned at the "criticism" he received for hiring so many Mississippi State engineers in the spring of 1974. I hope his career and reputation did not suffer too greatly for that wise decision.

I will miss him. Susan joins me in extending our sympathy to his family.

Don was my Engineering Supervisor when I was a young mechanical engineer at Amoco Chemicals Company in the 1980's. He was such a kind and knowledgeable mentor ... always had time for you no matter how busy he was. I also knew him as a deeply religious man when he was a deacon at Central Baptist Church. One of my fondest memories of him was walking into his office at any time and asking for a joke. You could give him any topic and he could tell you a joke that even the Lord would laugh at. He is a true child of God. My sincerest condolences to all of his Family.

I am saddened to learn of Don's passing and wish to extend my kindest sympathies to all of Don's family and friends. I was blessed to share an office with Don in 1969 when I joined Amoco right out of our Alma Mater Bama. Don was an early mentor, a kind gentleman, and a joy to work with as a professional associate. May he rest in peace in the arms of the Lord.
