Don was a fascinating guy, and so good with our three boys, who really loved him and always looked forward to seeing him on holidays. They already really miss him.

When Missy and Scott started dating and later married, Don quickly became a part of our family. We spent so many holidays together, birthday celebrations, and lots of fun times. He was very thoughtful to always think of our children. The boys started to look to him as another grandparent almost. He was such a kind, gentle, and warm man. He always had a smile and a kind word for everyone he met. He will be greatly missed!

Don was always friendly toward me when I needed to do something in the Toalc office or had copies to make or simply to sit and chat with me.

Don was a dedicated and longtime volunteer at The Older Adult Learning Center (TOALC.) He would take on whatever assignment there was no matter how tedious with good cheer and enthusiasm. He was a kind and thoughtful man, a true gentleman. He will be missed!
