Don was a wonderful, caring person and a friend. His optimistic outlook on life and how he enjoyed his family and community made him a joy to work with and be around. He loved our community and he will be sorely missed. He was a helping hand when work needed to be done and a force behind our community gatherings for many years as grill master. He was a special person and those of us who knew him are better people for his presence in our lives. Fair winds and following seas my friend.

My heartfelt prayers for peace and comfort go to Karen and the rest of Don’s family. Don treated all of us as "family". Our mission , our deadlines, our needs - they mattered to him. He had the highest respect for it, and he was completely dedicated. I will always be thankful for the encouragement and mentoring he gave me, and am thankful for the years I was able to work under his direction. I will miss his warm and generous heart and that big paw handshake.
