As part of the St Andrew Catholic Church (Rochester) volunteer program, I have visited Donald for the last several years at Sunrise Assisted living. He was always a joy to talk with and his smile would light up the room. I will miss him very much.

I've known Don since the 9th grade. I guess I could say that we grew up together. When we were deciding where to go to high school he chose to go to Aero Mechanics High School in Detroit at Detroit City Airport. My choice was to go to Cass Tech in Detroit because I wanted to study drafting. From that time on we continue to see each other occasionally to a lot. During that time the Hot Rod was gaining popularity in Los Angeles so we elected to join in. During the following years we actually built two different ones the first was a 1930 Model A Ford and the second was the 1932 5 Window Coupe. Another one of our friends John was included in this effort.
After graduation from high school Don got a job in a machine shop if I remember correctly. I was working in Chrysler Truck Body engineering. Around 1954 Don got laid off from a plant making fiberglass body parts. He was allergic to the fiberglass. At the same time Chrysler was hiring, where I was working, but in the Truck Chassis engineering department. I suggested to Don to apply for one of the openings in drafting. He did and he was hired. This was important because of what was going to happen next.
We both received our draft notice for the U.S. Army. Don's brother-in-law Al drove us down Fort Wayne induction Center on his way to work. We travel by train to Fort Leonard Wood Missouri for basic training. After basic training I was sent to a mapping company and Don went on to additional training and armor, I think. After the army we both returned to Chrysler.
We also have taken a few vacations together. Over the following years we did see each other occasionally and I will miss the conversations we've had.

My sincere condolences to Jenny and her family. I worked a number of years with Don at Chrysler. We became friends and would get together to share pictures of our vacations. Don was so excited when Jenny was born and she was the apple of his eye. Don and Kay visited us up at Canadian Lakes with their trailer. I have many great memories of Don, he was a gentle and warm person. He will be missed.
