Sad to hear about Don. I knew Don for a long time, we worked together at the Air Force Academy and again at Peterson AFB. He was an outstanding HVAC tech,
as well as a quality Christian man that loved his Lord with all his heart.
I know he has had a tough few years but he is at peace now.
I’m out of town and will not be able to attend his service.
