We just learned of our old friend’s passing today. To Doreen, Michael and Rebecca our heartfelt condolences. Don was a good friend, husband, father, grandfather and professional. His insatiable sense of humor is something that still makes me smile today. He was a licensed maritime captain and taught me a few things about biting that I’ve never forgotten. He was also a musician and I can still hear him singing his favorite classics or winning an oldies trivia contest on a cruise we were both on. The silliness of life drove us separate ways but the fondness remains.

Rest in Peace Don.

Having met Don in 1985, serving on an education board, both of us running our family school, we made a quick and long term friendship.
I relied on his opinions regarding compliance related issues for years, because Don was known nationally as an honest, highly ethical and knowledgeable expert.
When I had the opportunity to work with him I jumped at the chance.
I will miss having our daily conversations, lunches and even the occasional adult beverage where we had a chance to talk about our School, families and futures.
He was such a hard working person, dedicated and proud of his family including his Nettts family. He was truly a transformative partner and he led the company with me for so many years.
To Doreen and the family and friends of Don, you are joined in your loss by the Nettts family.
We wish you peace and our prayers are with you.
With sympathy
Mark and the Greenberg family

Don,
Our paths have not recently crossed but you were always near in my mind. A man is not judged by the number of years he lived but by how he lived those years. Your life was dedicated to helping others aspire, to reach their dreams. You’ve done your part in making our world a better place. I wish you eternal rest.
Your friend,
Jim

My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. Don had an impact on others as a mentor, colleague, and friend. I've included a photo from an ACCSC Professional Development Conference that I thought you would like to have. He will be missed by all of us at ACCSC.

I volunteered with Don a couple times with ACCSC. He had far more experience than I did, and he was very kind and patient with me. His passion for education and for supporting students (and colleagues) was evident at all times. Truly a great man!

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Don’s passing. One of the last good men out there. He loved to show people a good time and he was always more interested in hearing about you.
I worked in a salon across from the business school on Pearl and he walked in one day and got his haircut and stayed with me for years. He became fondly known as “the walk-in”. Even after he moved to the North Shore he would stop in to visit..always a smile on.
So long my friend…
My heart felt condolences to all his family..whom I’ve known for years as well. May you find peace. Much love,
Marci McCarty

To Doreen and Don's family - it is with a heavy heart I send my most sincere condolences to you. I worked alongside Don for almost 8 years - he hired me and saw my potential to be a great team member at NETTTS. I will never forget him for the opportunity he gave me and for the leadership he provided to all of us. He will be sorely missed and irreplaceable. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of grief. Blessings for peace and comfort to your family.
