So many good memories of working around you Don. The orneriness guy! That toughness hid such a soft side. You will be missed.

We have so many, many wonderful memories of Don. It is so hard to pick just one. He was a kind, gentle man that always acted his faith on every level. Game nights were especially a treat because he was quiet but often had a funny observation about the game going on. He was a great sport. Don participated in anything and everything without question. We will miss our friend Gator. We loved him, considered him a special friend and a best friend. We will miss you Don!!
Love,
Mearl and Lonni

Bunny and children, I am so sorry for Don's passing. When I look at his age I think I'm his age. He was here a long time. But he is at peace now. God bless your family in this hour of pain.

I was saddened to hear about Don's passing. I remember you both very well at Delphi and afterward. You both were wonderful to know. I know firsthand losing a spouse is very hard. I hope the great memories will help with your grief. Blessings to you and the family.

I will miss Don ( the real McCoy). He was one of the nicest, friendliness and helpful gentleman I have ever met. He was patient teaching me different card games, adventuresome ( willing to do he polar bear plunge on New Year’s Day in the Gulf of Mexico.) he will open up his home and always greet you with a smile. Love from Illinois. Vicky and Bernie Cluskey
