To: Don's family
From: Andrew Barbano

I knew Don as business agent for Local 533 and have sent a notice of his passing to Nevada Labor website union lists.

Both the union and I would like to be notified of funeral arrangements so that we may inform the brotherhood and sisterhood.

If you have a photo of Don, I can use it at the website.

All of Nevada labor mourns our dear friend and brother Don.

Bummer was such a positive influence on my life. I learned from him to have respect for one another, the importance of family and most of all, the value of a hard day's work.

Dan and Dawn, I'm sorry for your loss. Both your mother and your father were great people and I'm glad that I got to know them and I appreciate the impact they had on me.
