So very sorry to hear of Don's death. He was a wonderful young man when I knew him at Wilson Campus School. He was happy in the outdoors and I am happy he made a good life for himself and those he loved. Sincere Condolences to his family.

Don was such a special friend and co-worker. We enjoyed our times together--swap meets, parades, fireworks, and BENCO dinners. He will truly be missed!

I am so sorry to hear this unhappy news. Don and I went to Wilson together as youngsters and when we were in our twenties, we
ran with some of the same group of friends. Thoughts & Prayers to all
family at this difficult time. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
