I remember a kind, good-natured man. We barely knew one another but even so he was a great supporter of my numismatic research and a spokesperson with others on my behalf. I won’t forget.

Don was a great mentor and supporter of the Waterloo Coin Society. He left behind a legacy and framework for one of the most successful club auctions that is followed to this day.

He will be missed by the many who had the fortunate opportunity to benefit from his wisdom, attention to detail and passion for the numismatic hobby.

I first met Don at the WCS in 1991 when I joined. He was a wealth of information and very kind to all.
