To the Goulet Family

Don was an amazing teammate with the Nutmeg Rerun and Team Buzzard Hockey Teams. He was always there to convert a pass to a goal and to give a pass to an open player. He kept us in laughter through wins and losses, home games, locker rooms, and far away tournaments. He loved his wife dearly, his children immensely, and I am sure he spoiled those grandchildren. I personally enjoyed his conversations at breakfast, his search for a second doughnut, and his positive approach to all problems of the day!
God Bless him for the gift of life that he shared with us all. It was all good memories.
