I love to remember and think about the jokes he would do and just keep the serious look or a straight face.

I will always remember going camping and you buying the little boxes of the "good cereal" aka sugary ones. Your donald duck impression was always the highlight of our visits. Always having your music playing and knowing all the lyrics to the songs. I love you Uncle Don. I will cherish our times together often. See you again one day. ❤

We were very saddened to hear of Don’s passing. We’ll miss his sense of humor and his passion for trivia, music and game playing. He was a good man who left us far to early. Our sincere condolences to Rena and his family. ❤️
