So sorry for your loss. Don was a great man and long-time family friend to the whole Spengel family and most of all to my Dad. I have fond memories of their monthly bridge nights where they had to have Fresca but somehow it was always leftover, visit on Christmas Eve day, lots of things from L&N with my Dad and even when I worked there myself.

Don was there whenever someone needed him with a smile and a laugh. He will be missed.

I worked for Don at Leeds & Northrup. He was such a good negotiator with personnel and customers. I enjoyed working for Don. He and Carol also came to many of Pleasantville's Choir when we sang at Christmas. He was a very supportive boss and good listener. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family. "I don't know what to say, I don't know what to do, but I will pray". Blessings Helga

Gene had worked for Don at Leeds and Northrup (L&N)- they were the best of times for those of us who were control systems and instruments engineers related to major industrial processes - electric power distribution, generating plants, cement plants, water and waste water - you name it we were there. It was a time when this new technology called the "Digital Computer" was replacing the old traditional ways of process control. Don was part of this golden age of Process Control. As we look back, it was people like Don who contributed in a big way to improving people's lives by making better use of natural resources and reducing the use of energy in industrial processes. These were real sustainable changes in process improvement. Don & his associates were all pioneers in this.
Unfortunately it all came to an end, when the venerable L&N company closed its doors forever after almost 100 years. Don, Gene and Len Robinson were the last three people on the L&N payroll. Don then retired, Len went to Ohio with the "BIF" product line and Gene started a new career in pharmaceuticals (He retired 2 years ago). Betty also knew Don from her days at L&N, then had the pleasure of attending some Broadway shows and other events with Don and Peg - Don sure loved those Broadway shows!
Don will always be fondly remembered for the part he played in our lives.

Uncle Don, I am glad Dave and I got to spend some time with you a few years ago. You were all I had left of my Dad and I will miss you terribly. Bob and Donna, you have my deepest sympathy. Sue Hill

"What comfort, therefore, have we against these losses? This, surely, that we must remember them even after they are lost, and that we must not suffer to fall out of our minds the joy that we have had from them, even though we have them no more." Donna, we are lifting you and your family in prayer and sending you lots of love.

I will always remember Don Hill for his consistent and steadfast efforts of service on the North Penn School Board. Despite tumult and controversy, Don was even-handed and fair to all. May the Lord of All Comfort embrace his family during this difficult time and may the many memories you all share keep you warm in the days to come. Donna L. Mengel
