Dear Donna,
So sorry to hear of Don's passing. I worked out of the Harrisburg branch and often traveled to State College to work with Don on installations. Always enjoyed his company. He was a great guy and what a salesman!

Donna, I was so sorry to learn of Don's death just days after my husband, Ed, passed away. I truly feel your loss. I remember the many times we four enjoyed each other's company and Don's sense of humor. Please know that every time I think of Ed and E.N.D., I will remember Don. My prayers are with you and your family. Please feel free to e-mail me any time at [email protected]

Dear Donna: You most likely don't remember me but I worked with Don for a few years at E.N. Dunlap while I was the Branch Mgr. in Lancaster. When visiting his office in State College or seeing him at a meeting in Harrisburg he always made me laugh. He was a great person and knew his business well. The only thing I can say to help your loss is that he has gone to a better place. Our condolences to you and your family.

During my career at Northwest Savings Bank I had the privilege of meeting many fine people and Don was one of them. We visited nearly every time he came to the West College office, not far from his office and each visit was always a pleasant part of my day. Baum family, I'm sorry for your loss. God only made one copy of Don. God will be with you all in the rough times ahead.
