so very sorry to hear of Don's passing....Your family was a favorite and a mainstay in my life as I was growing up. So many fun memories of Don and my dad throughout the buffalo state days!!!...especially trying their hand at a new business adventure of putting together a booklet of all the jobs available in the SUNY system..... right down to stapling the damn thing together and getting it ready to mail out in your basement!!...Oh what visions they had!! No one could ever beat the Mac Adam...

Don was one of the classiest gentlemen I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. His enthusiastic spirit will remain with us forever.

Don was one of the greatest professors I had at Buffalo State. He touched so many lives. He has left quite a legacy in education and it sounds like he had a very fulfilling life. My sympathy to all those who mourn his passing.
