I am shocked to hear of Don's passing. We worked together at LAPD's Harbor Division just prior to his retirement from the Department. Don was great to work with. He was well liked and respected by all ranks and
was a wonderful communicator and watch commander. I look back at our time together with a big smile on my face. You left us too soon my friend and will be missed by all who knew you.

Respectfully,

Shocked to hear of Don's passing. I worked with him at LAPD 77th Street from 89-91, partnered with him a couple of times. Good man in a good humor. Also worked with him at Metropolitan Division three years later. RIP, my friend.

I worked with him at LPD, it was a pleasure, always confident and direct, helpful, and took the time to analyze an issue before jumping to a response.
