My condolences to the Manning Family-
While I never met Don, my wife Pam (Horn)
Hastings was mentored by and employed by Don both at the cities of Chanute, KS & Sweetwater, Tx and as she attended UT-Austin. Unfortunately Pam lost track of Don after we were married and moved to Florida in 1975. Pam had always spoken highly of Don for all his support and encouragement.
Sadly, Pam passed away on 06-17-12 at the age of 59. While going through her old papers, I was reminded of Don and thought I would try to locate him to let him know of her passing as her 1st anniversary approaches. Much to my surprise, I found this obituary and am unable to fulfill that task, but did want to acknowledge to his family, his good deeds rendered on behalf of Pam!
Thank you Don-
Barry (& Pam) Hastings
