Saddened to read of Don's passing and I offer my sympathies to all. Don was a conscientious and dependable co-worker when we worked together in Columbia City. He is now in a much better place.

Blessings to all,

My deepest sympathies for my favorite show choir family. He introduced me to barbershop and had the best porky pig impression, Ill never forget him.
