  1. Don was one of my closest friends. We covered many miles together during hunting trips to CO, KS, Michigan and MD. We rode motorcycles ( not always at the legal speed limit) in our younger days and shot, rifles, handguns and shotguns together for 45 years. He was a man who was firm in his beliefs and straight forward in conversation.

    If he said he would pick me up at 5:00 am, I could ALWAYS count on him pulling in my driveway by 4:50 am. You could take him “at his word”; a rare commodity these days. Don loved to take things apart and enjoyed “hot-rodding” anything with a motor; lawn mowers included! He was always quick to volunteer his help with any mechanical project and at the gun clubs. As for family, Don talked more about his kids and grandkids than they probably realized, but his love and pride for his family was strong.

    You fought a good fight against tough odds, Don. I will never forget our friendship, kinship and the real depth of our conversations during the valuable time we spent together. Rest now; you earned it.

  2. My memory of Don, he was a great mentor to my children and grandchildren, he was able to fix things for them boats, teaching them gun shooting and more. I always enjoyed his stories of the service and truck driving. And sharing what blood pressure meds. we both had to take. He will be missed at family gatherings. May his memory be with the family at all times. Love you Joyce.

  3. What a great guy! I met Don shooting trap and skeet at HH&A in the early 90’s when I was just a kid, Don has been a good shooting friends ever since. Don was always involved with volunteering at various clubs and an advocate for shooting sports.
    He will be missed.
