I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing but more importantly am so glad I got to know him over the last few years when he came to work at Turner, Mason & Company as his last consulting assignment. Don truly was 80+ years young. He had the enthusiam and zest for life that all of us should strive for and there was not a time when I didn't enjoy visiting with him. I am especially happy that I had a chance to visit with him one last time when he came to the company Christmas party this past December. He will be truly missed here in this life but I certainly look forward to meeting up again with him in the next glorious and eternal life.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I worked at Diamond Shamrock during the time he was there and found him to be a very sweet, gentle man. May he rest in peace. He is with the Lord.

I really enjoyed working with Don his few years at Turner, Mason. Having been an independent refiner myself, I found Don to be a kindred spirit and we traded numerous refinery stories during those limited years he was at TM&C. He had a marvelous sense of humor and a keen wit, which I really appreciated along with his wealth of refining knowledge. We certainly miss him.

I have not seen Don in years but remember him so fondly. Almost every time I fly a plane I remember his sage advice and attention to detail. I have so so much to thank him for. He was a fantastic flight instructor and genuinely kind man.

Amelia,
I miss the two of you as my Chesapeake neighbors. I hated the day your house sold and you left. :( I was always impressed with Don's wit and intelligence. Hugs to you and the Bird family!
