Donald was one of our favorite people. Ed loved playing golf with him! And we loved his visits to our home in FL. I always told him he was a "low maintenance" houseguest. He would emerge from his car with his pillow and a box of cereal. He was always a gentleman, bright, kind and considerate. He was full of wisdom and knew human nature!
Will be missed!

My heart is saddened, at the passing of your Uncle Don. I will always remember him, fondly, as strapping, intelligent, quick witted, punctual, and a gentleman. I lost my Mother, on November 14, 2020. I will send up prayers that God surrounds you and keeps you, in His safe and loving care and gives you comfort, peace, and the gift of loving memories, to reflect upon, until we are all reunited, with Christ, once again. ❤🙏❤
