Don came from a fine family growing up in Kannapolis. He chose as his mission working very effectively as a YMCA executive. Indeed, he was a faithful disciple whose service to humanity is a powerful example to all.

I was saddended to learn of Don's passing. Our paths had crossed probably 50 years ago at Johnston YMCA and more recently at Discovery Place, where we both worked. Don had a special people personality and had a great sense of humor. I know he had great faith, and is with his Creator. My condolences to his family and friends.
