Don was my friend growing up. Many fond memories of playing at his house on Central Street. Lost track of him during high school years. I should have looked harder. Glad to see he had a great life. My condolences to his family. Jim Roach

I was saddened to read of the passing of Don. He was my patient before I retired and he was always pleasant and thoughtful. I hope he enjoyed his retirement as much as he had anticipated though not as long as he had hoped. May he Rest In Peace. I will keep him in my prayers. Jim Watson
