I had the pleasure of getting to know Don over the last couple years. What a character. He sure knew how to make you laugh. I am going to miss his stories and inappropriate jokes. Rest easy old man <3

Don was the nicest guy. I knew him from the west side. Always a smile, especially after his retirement. I will miss seeing him around
