I enjoyed visiting with Don as a friend, former military and lover of fine woodworking, fine music and fine food. Don used to ride along with me when the monthly woodworking meetings took place. He has joined me in my shop, has given me woodworking tips. I was able to save wood scraps that he could use in the BBQ process; and have sampled some of the meat from his smoker. He invited me to join him at a recording studio when he was cutting a new record. I had no idea that Blue Springs had a recording studio. He made his own banjo; and the artwork on it is priceless museum quality. Don had many talents and I will miss him. I am sad that the virus took away the opportunity to visit him in recent weeks,

Uncle Don was not only a Great Banjo player, but he was somewhat a master smoker/bar-b-que. He loved to bake and over the years learned and perfected many recipes such as baklava, fig cookies, chocolate pecan pie and a few batches of Povitica bread.
He had a heart of gold and family dinners and picnics were his favorite events.

Rest in Peace sweet Don

I'm so going to miss the sweet sounds of his banjo playing. I loved listening to him play. Now he can join the band of angels in heaven. Play that sweet sounds for us. We will miss you .
