I remember Don at New Life Pentecostal Church in Gravenhurst, as being an amazingly open minded man, always willing to look at new ideas. I also recall him as a remarkable man who still liked to ride his big Goldwing motorcycle even in his very late 80s. He used to tell me how he'd ride down the highway in the mornings, and that bike always had a mind of its own when he drove near Tim Hortons. He had quite a sense of humour. My condolences to all family members and friends.

Don was an active member of the Burlington Amateur Radio Club.
Was always at the Meetings and Techie Night with a smile for ALL and able to contribute to interesting conversations even into his 90's.
R.I.P. Don...You affected us all with your presence.
Our Condolences to Geri and the family
