I worked with Don in the early 1980's at Freiden Alcatel. He was a mentor, good friend and one of the kindest people I have ever known. He played golf with my father-in-law years ago. He never stopped talking about how much he loved his daughters and worried about them all the time. I remember his ready smile and many, many jokes! Please accept my sympathies in the loss of your father. He was a true gentleman.
