I remember Don working along side my Dad at Bigler's grocery and at the Baker Home where all the kids played. A class act, he will be mi.ssed.

Gary and extended family I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with Don at Lky and I always thought he a was a class act. If you were having a problem he would drop what he was doing and give you hand, He and I had many discussions about Gary and his job as a cop, since I was a 9-1-1 dispatcher at the same time. We lost contact after he retired and I am so sorry for that. I hope you all can relish in memories that you shared with Don. Just knowing he is not here will leave a hole in my heart. God bless.
