Don was my best friends father. His son Jon took me along with him to Dr. Holtzhiemer's and Dr Brimble's veterinarian office. We got to clean the kennels and accasionally assist in holding wary cats (wrapped in a tube of newspaper) recipient of neutering. He was humorous after the stress when fiished. Dr. Don introduced us to Spaggetti Factory when it was downtown. He invited me to join the family on a visit to the state fair my first. We all had fun. He also gave me my first half of a beer. After helping Jon mow the yard on a particular hot summer day he rewarded both of us to half of a canned cold refreshment. Probably the first lager I ever enjoyed. Don invited me to speak at Toastmasters which was an honor. The breakfast at Elmer's was another tradition. Don was Hanks Henry's (strawberry farmer /firefighter) and Dr Brown's (Gresham GP) neighbor. He was quite a role model.

I first met Don at his Toastmasters anniversary dinner several years ago when I was a District officer. I was struck by his upbeat attitude and humor. I was honored to write the article that appeared in the February 2017 issue of Voices! My sympathies go out to his Toastmasters and personal family for their loss.
