Ross and I met Don in 2008 and we became good friends right away. We enjoyed two Carnival Cruises with Don and Lori and many good times at their beautiful home in the summer.. Swimming and BBQ. Also many dinners at some great restaurants.
Don was always there for us. He gave of his time and knowledge. He taught me how to care for our pool and he never lost patience with with me.. I'm a slow learner. He was so kind. We love you Don and we will miss you. Rest in Peace Dear Friend till we meet again.

First, Lori, Don, Dan and families my condolences and prayers are with you. Don and I grew up together. I have many wonderful memories. Our first cars were both Volkswagen Bugs. We spent many hours together scanning auto salvage yards for parts to repair or improve our cars. Don and I spent many fall days hunting at his grandparents farm in Rensselaer county. I remember one time we didn’t feel like attending school so we jumped in the car, drove to NY city and had lunch in diner next to Yankee stadium. As young men we didn’t understand the significance and importance of maintaining our friendship. So we lost contact for years. Another tragedy, the loss of Don’s mother, reconnected us. I am happy for that and going to miss my friend. I’m glad he’s no longer in pain and in a better place now.

Oh gosh I have so many memories from when we were kids. Don could always come up with a scheme to get us in trouble. My favorite time was when we lived on saratoga st. In Cohoes N.Y. We lived in a two story house on a hill facing a busy street , it had a porch with a crawl space under it with lattice on the front. So Don’s great idea was to get the garden hose out and pull it under the porch and aim it through the lattice into the cars passing bye on the street. It was summer and back then cars had no air conditioning, windows were opened and the garden hose spray hit the people in the cars! We thought it was so great, the police did not! Needless to say we got in trouble! I will miss you Don!
