What a wonderful friend Don was to me and all our family. I loved especially, the time he came to Chattanooga and we got to play
golf together! Very sweet man and a perfect gentleman. He was
very thoughtful and I enjoyed hearing from him every Christmas. I will miss him.

Oh my what a story teller especially when he and dad, Bob Brown, got together. Had me up on the ski's the first time down at the lake. He and dad shooting that 36cal black powder gun and both of them jumping out of their skins when it went off. 73 I got out of the Army and who helped me get my first new Subaru. Mostly riding a new car every trip to the lake. And when Don tried to sell that convertible to dad and he brought it home. Oh, mom saw that and back to Don it went for a REAL CAR. Dad never lived that one down. Beautiful homes Don had built. What a wonderful family friend. So great to have known you.

The Minor Park Golf Course Family is saddened by the loss of such a fine gentleman, but we are comforted by the thought that Don played a 'full 18' in this life and he will always be remembered by his friends here.

Uncle Don, Just wanted you & your family to know how much I thought of you. You always treated me great. I have lots of great memories of the fishing trip to Minnesota when I was a kid and all the time I lived with you and Aunt Marj while going to barber school in Kansas City. Due to weather predictions, I am not making the trip to the city for your memorial service. I would have liked to visit with your brother Gene after all these years. Thanks for everything over the years. I always loved you.
