Mr. Eckmann was the consummate engineer. His love for the profession was reflected in everything he did. We at AB&H/Donohue will miss his wealth of experience and eye for detail.
Our sympathy to Arlene and the family. Sorry we could not attend the funeral because I am in Africa.
My deepest sympathy for your loss.
I had only met Don within the past year during an ASCE EJCDC meeting and found him to be a very energetic, passionate and dedicated man. He provided much knowledge and leadership to ASCE and the engineering profession, and I thank him for his many years of service.
He will be missed dearly and remembered fondly.

Dear Mrs. Eckmann,
I was sorry to hear of Mr. Eckmann passing. My deepest condolences and sympathies to you and your family. I always admired Mr. Eckmann's dedication and commitment to helping the agencies he was associated with serve their communities.
Dear Mrs. Eckmann, Pam, David, and Lora,
Deepest sympathy to you and your families on the passing of Mr. Eckmann. May God be with you today and in the days to come.
I remember Don as a great University of Illinois alum, always flying the orange and blue. He once gave me an official U of I tooth brush since he knew I was an avid U of I fan. I will miss him, but I know with full confidence he is with his and our Savior and I will be with him at some future time.
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Don Eckmann. I work for him at Downers Grove Sanitary District and had many great interactions with him. He cared about all of our customers and workplace so much. I will be a better person and leader at Downers Grove Sanitary District because of Don. He made a big impact in the short time I have known him. I am sorry for your loss. He will be missed.
Dear Eckmann Family- I was so sorry to read of the passing of Don. My sister,brother, and I, and our families send our prayers of comfort to you at this difficult time. We have such great memories of our lives in Denburn Woods with all of you and our wonderful neighborhood. Don will be missed.

So sorry about the passing of Don, I had no idea he was so sick, when I was late to work I always took the
train with him, and teased him about those ECKMANN
buns, When I talked about Arlene making the Eckmann
buns, he had the biggest smile on his face, the last time
we talk about the ECKMANN Buns, he said one of his
granddaughters were following the Eckmann tradition
and learning how to make the Eckmann buns, he said she was doing a great job. Don, will surely be missed,
I will always cherish the conversations on the train, he was a fun person.
I have known Don since 1975 when he and two other engineers inviewed me for acceptance as a Diplomate in the American Academy of Environmenal Engineers. From that day forward I always looked up to Don as an outstanding Civil Engineer. His major role as Manager for the Lake Michigan Water Supply Project for DuPage County is now legendary. I remember well as Utilities Director for the City of Napeville going along with Don and Bob Martin, City Manager of Elmhurst to meet with the Water Commissioner of the City of Chicago to negotiate the water suppply contract which later was approved. This was monumental for providing DuPage County with a reliable and permanent water supply. He will be remembered for the great civil engineering project and his leadership role.
Don really enjoyed his role on the Downers Grove Sanitary District and he was a great choice to be on their Board
I remember Don as an avid Illini football fan who attended every game. Several times my wife Dorothy and I were invited by Don and Arlene to attend the Illinois-Iowa game at Champaign (Iowa being my alumni) It was always fun no matter who won. His awards from the Univesity of Illinois as an outstanding graduate were so well deserved.
I remember Don from our many meeting on the Lake Michigan Water Supply Project and DuPage Water Commission monthly meetings over many years as an articulate and technically sound engineer. He was outgoing,friendly, and had a jovial laugh. He always wore his American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE) tire tack an organization he very much was involved with and enjoyed. Also, being an ASCE Fellow Member I respected his devotion to this organization and its principles.
Remembering Don is easy beause he was a wonderful person and as a fellow engineer I always enjoyed our many meetings and association.
I will miss Don and was saddened to hear of his passing and his long battle with cancer. He most certainly had a good life with Arlene and family and has contributed postively to mankind as a true Civil Engineer. I can say he was real friend and fellow civil engineer. I have been fortunate to know Don. My sincere sympathy to Arlene and family on Don's passing.
