Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathy.

We extend our sincere sympathy and value your trust during this time of remembrance and reflection. We pledge our support now and in the future.

A kind and strong neighbor whose smile, gentle humor (and presence on the Golf Course and throughout our community) will be greatly missed by all in these trying times.

Don's whole life was about making other's stronger, better and healthier. He was more than just a trainer and in most cases a better counselor. You could always go to him for help. He always had a smile on his face and I will always remember him. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

I am so sad to hear about Don's passing. I met him many years ago at Planet Fitness and he always talked so much about his beautiful wife and daughters and never hesitated to pull out a picture of them to show me! He helped so many people with their health journey and boy was he passionate about it! The world is a sadder place without Don in it

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief, and find comfort from knowing that God draws close to the broken-hearted.
