Candy my wife and I have known Don for 7 years, when I first met Don he was very friendly and warm. Don was the type of gentleman that would have done anything for anybody with no questions asked. My foundest memory of Don is every summer he would ride his motorcycle to our home and candy and I would throw a big barbeque and we would all play horse shoes and eat until we could not move. Don you are going to be missed everyday by Candy and me. Love you brother.

I'll never forget when Don and I rode out to Sturgis SD together in "94. We had put some cheap windshields on our scoots because neither of us wanted to spend the money for good ones. On the way out, some of the screws holding the windshield to the windshield frame on Don's bike had vibrated out. In Don's typical "Oh well, it still has this many screws holding it stile", he never paid it much attention. While we were out there, on Interstate I-90 I do believe, his windshield sailed over his head. Don pulled off, quickly threw the kickstand down, jumped off the bike and went running back to retrieve it before it got ran over. He didn't make it. A semi truck ran over it smashing it to pieces. He had to ride all the way back to Flint in a monsoon without a windshield. Tough as nails he was. Goodbye my friend. You will be missed. We'll ride together again someday.
