My sincere condolences goes out to the Pettler Family. I was so sorry to hear about your loss and may all the happy memories comfort you all during this difficult time of sorrow.

I worked for Don at PNC Bank and he was a kind and thoughtful boss and friend. Even though we lost touch over the years, there will always be great memories of him.

Rest in Peace, Don.
