I met Don back in 1992, when I first joined the Idaho Air National Guard, fresh from active duty. Don was funny, and personable, showing me around the place a little, and picking on me a little (all in fun). He introduced me to some of his fellow crew chiefs and friends, and it was obvious how close everybody was to Don. While I haven't worked with him since the F-4s left, I was glad to run into him at work and we'd talk and get caught up. He was kind and he'll be missed - my sincere condolences to his family.
