Don was many things to many people at our church Good Shepherd- he was a pillar of strength to all and showed his love of people in the form of weekly hugs when greeting everyone he could. He knew everyone in the congregation by name and never missed a chance to say hello to even our newest members. Don was truly a man of faith, and was looked up to by many throughout the years. It is completely fitting that Don ascended to the father in heaven on ascension day- may he be at peace with the heavenly father-

My Uncle - Donald Block - was a Christian man who lead by his quiet, unassuming example, as did his father before him. He will be missed by all who crossed his path and had the pleasure of knowing him.

I will always remember him. Yes, he would always greet everyone with a warm hug and a kindly hello. So sorry for your loss. Yet, what wonderful memories to cherish of a wonderful Christian man. He is now at Peace in heaven.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Joy and Family, What a privilege it was to know Don these past years when I would come to visit Ryan & Jodie for a weekend. His smiling face and hugs made me feel special. What a godly man who walked the walk of faith. He showed the rest of us what is truly important in life. May our Lord Jesus surround all of you with the comfort and peace that only He can provide. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Thankfully, we will some day all be together in the heavenly home that is awaiting us.

Dear Joyous and Family: Can't tell you how saddened we are to hear of Don's passing. When we first moved to Appleton, you two made us feel welcomed and accepted into your home, church, and family. Don was such a loving and genuine man and we feel so honored to have known him. We hope your loss might be lessened by the picture of knowing that he has joined with those he so missed when he was here, and also no longer has to fight that dreaded diabetes. With fond memories we send our love and sincere condolences. - Guy and Edie
