Thinking of you Don as you are laid to rest. I only met you once but you were so engaging and warm to me and my family. I know you will be missed. Peace to your family. Doreen Perez, March 14, 2020 On behalf of the Brother's of Pi Kappa Alpha in Springfield, MO, I offer our sincere condolences on the passing of Don. Mac Humphries, a brother in Kansas City, discovered his obituary and we've distributed it to a number of Don's fellow Pikes. We remember Don very well as a kind, generous, loving and humorous brother who loved life. While it appears that most of us unfortunately did not stay in contact with Don, we want you to know that we are collectively mourning with you. May God rest his soul.
