I was very sorry to learn of Don's passing. I worked with him at IBM in Security'
I was sad to learn of Don's passing. We were classmates (class of '63) at Red Hook Central and I have many fond memories of our time there. Don was such a fun loving guy. All of the pictures were wonderful and much appreciated. My sincerest sympathy.
Karen and Jack,
So sorry to hear about your Dad. Thinking of you and your family at this time of loss.

Evelyn and Karen and Denise. So sorry about the loss of Don. You are in my prayers Evelyn. Much love to the family..
Fondly remembering Don from our days at red hook central school
Ginger Harlow Melton's "Uncle Don" has always been a favorite part of the family for our children and I. He was a genuinely good man, funny and giving; he would help anyone out in any way possible. He was generous with his time and his resources, and valued people above things. We'll miss him but he leaves a great example for his grandchildren. I hope that Evelyn, Denise and Karen will remember and pass on the many good and funny stories about this great guy, and so be comforted in their loss. May God rest his soul.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. And may your memories of Don bring you comfort in the years to come. Condolences from a former classmate of Don's at RHCS, class of 1963.
I have great memories of playing basketball with Don at Red Hook. Never a dull moment. My condolences

I was so sorry to hear of Don's passing. Don and I were good friends in Red Hook during High School. I will keep you all in my prayers. God Bless you all
Karen, Denise, and Ms. Gersch, I am sorry for your loss. Don was a great man. He helped me in my early career at IBM and I will always be grateful.
So sorry to hear of Don's passing. I was a good friend and classmate at Red Hook High. We spent a lot of time together before I left for college and he went in the service. We had some good times - I mean really good times!! After viewing the online photos, I'm glad to see he still had that same smile (sometimes a little mischievous). I haven't seen Don since we graduated. I always hoped we'd get together one more time and was hoping that he would make it to our 50th High School reunion this past summer. I really regret that we never got together again to talk about the good times. It's also hard to believe that Donna is gone too. She was a close friend of my wife's (Beverly Samaha). Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Kip & Beverly Walsh, RHCS 1963, 18 Fox Hollow Rd, Valatie, NY 12184 (518 784 5502)

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Don for years at IBM. We shared an office. We had many laughs together. I did not know he was sick. Gary Furr (Raleigh, NC)
Evelyn, so sorry for your tremendous loss. I was not aware Don was sick. Over the years, we had much fun and many laughs together, mostly around the golf course. I know I don't have to tell you or your family that we have lost a good man!
We are away from home so we will not be able to attend the services.
Evelyn, Karen and Denise, We are so sorry for your tremendous loss. He was a wonderful person, Mel & I are so thankful to have met him and were able to call him our friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
