With sincere sympathy to all the family. Don was a special person. He always took time to stop his tractor and chat when I would meet him coming out grading the road. He was a very intelligent man, someone you could rely on. He will be missed bu all who knew him. RIP

To all of Don's family, we wish to extend our deepest sympathy on Don's passing. What a great guy he was and so well liked by everyone. We bought the house, next door to the Exhibition, from him and Annie in the 90's and enjoyed the 10 years that we lived there. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you at this sad time.

I will always remember Don's wonderful smile, zest for life, love of reading and gift of story telling. He used to visit my dad often and they would spend hours laughing and recalling their times together when they were younger . They were constantly feeding each other their favourite books.

My condolences to all the family on your great loss. You are in my prayers.
