I was honored to have Dr. Chittum as a friend. Don was kind, fun, and quietly brilliant. We share many great artistic and personal memories from Governor's school. Don, we love you!!

I was so saddened to hear of Dr. Chittum's passing, but since reading this news I am revisiting memories of taking a course on world music with him almost two decades ago. In those days, he was the only teacher who could get me to consistently attend class at 8:00 am. Wishing his family and friends comfort in this time.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Don Jr. So sorry to read about the death of your Dad. I found his distinguished career most interesting. Sincere sympathy to you and your family.
