I did not know Don as well as others but seeing someone every day dropping off our mail, ALWAYS with a smile, friendly, polite, funny and sometimes having those quick - short - small conversations before he headed off to his next delivery, deeply saddened me when hearing of his passing! He will be truly missed by me and the everyone here at the office!! Prayers go out to his family, friends, and loved ones, during these trying days ahead.

I played pool with Don, Scotch Doubles on Monday night. He was always around and one on the kindest people, but he could also set you straight, LOL. He enjoyed getting a few underwear tied in knots. He was a pleasure and my life and many others were better for having known this man. Loved hearing that big roar when he rode away, keep on riding baby.
