My deepest sympathy to the family. I knew Don in high school. He was a great guy and a good friend. Sandi Metcalf (Stewart), July 31, 2013 I knew Don for at least 25 years. Don always had a positive attitude and was just enjoyable to work with or be around. Don was a lot of fun on the golf course too!. My thoughts and prayers go out to his beautiful wife Nancy, his daughter Natalie and his other children and family. Mike Dorman, July 25, 2013
