What a sweet sweet man and never without a smile - anyone and everyone who knew you loved you - this world is a sadder place without our sweet Don in it .
Rest peacefully knowing you were and always will be loved by many.
Gone but never forgotten .??
Don was a great guy! I lost touch with him for about 40 years when I left Michigan. I was lucky enough to have been able to talk to him again a few times in the past few years when I moved back. He would give the shirt off his back to help someone. I am so saddened by this news :-( My condolences go out to his family and friends.
Don, you will always be remembered and we are going to miss seeing you driving your classic cars in the neighborhood. Our deepest sympathy to the family.
Rick and Lori Wood

Don was one of the best father in laws anyone could ever have. I cherish all the hours at a time we would talk on the phone over the 18 years we have been family.
