I'm sorry for the passing of Don. I lost my dad in the same manner. My favorite memories are playing cards on Saturdays at the farm. Just guys being guys. He would be dealt a card and real loud he would say " Oh boy, Oh boy, Oh boy." One particular day stands out when he decided to start every engine he had at the farm. Everything from a chain saw to lawn mowers and the old John Deere he had in the barn. He liked to show off how long the John Deere would run after you shut off the fuel. It was pretty amazing actually. In my mind, growing up in Johnstown back in the day every boy had a second dad in town because of his friends. Don was mine. He will be missed by me.
