Don's passing leaves both voids and yet good memories at the same time for so many people.
Mostly I'll appreciate, admire and remember him for the unfailing love and care he gave my sister Carol and for the beautiful family he and Carol created.
Don loved my sister Carol and his family deeply, made Nancy and I and our kids feel part of that family, helped me with my early working career, made us all laugh, whooped me relentlessly in ping pong, never failed to lift the spirits of me or anyone he was with, and was as well rounded in his interests as anyone could expect to be. He truly lived up the Marine moto he was so proud of- "Semper Fi".
There is no doubt Don is now reaping the reward he so rightfully deserves.
I expect we all have at least a small part of us made better by being a part of his life

With appreciation and Sorrow,
Tom Nancy Michael and Marla

My heartfelt sympathy to Carol and the rest of the family members. During my tenure at Rochester Telephone, Don used to report to me and pinch it for me when I was away from the offices. A true professional who always wanted to do the right job and support the team. He will be fondly remembered and sorely missed. Tansukh V. Ganatra, Charlotte, NC

What a wonderful tribute to Uncle Don. Every word so very true. He was an Uncle with warmth, love, and integrity. Always smiling and positive. He made everyone feel special. I loved his love of God and his family. The beautiful relationship Uncle Don and Aunt Carol had was a great role model for all of us! He always loved those back rubs and having his hair combed. I am excited to be with him in heaven someday. Praise the Lord for giving us such an amazing man. He will be missed. Praying for the family during this time of loss. ❤️😘🙏
