I fondly remember Don from our Crescent Plastics years. Don and Ida were a beautiful and wonderful couple. Don was a loyal employee and a great worker. He was also a wickly smart guy and I used to talk with him frequently to get his insights on improving our work environment and really just discussing life in general. I was at Crescent from 1983 until I retired in 2010 and I vividly remember the timeline after the first gulf war in early 1990's and how Don was such an integral part of our growth as a company. I was saddened for us but happy for him when he decided to retire. . A wonderful guy, a wonderful employee and someone I considered a dear friend! May God rest his soul! My deepest sympathy to his entire family! Hang in there!
