I was in the Army Reserves with Don. Whenever I had any contact with him, he was always very friendly and helpful. Even though I lost touch with him after retiring from the Reserves, I still remembered what a caring person he was. He will be missed by all who knew him, but the good news is we will see him again when we join him in heaven.

Ruth and family,
It is very hard to accept the passing of Don, my friend and comrade. Don's dedication to his family, friends and military comrades is unmatched by many other husbands, fathers, friends and soldiers. I have served with Don in the US Army Reserves, American Legion and the Vietnam Veterans of America for many years. He always volunteered for all types of missions, no matter how difficult it was or how much time it took. Don was one of the proudest persons I ever new. He had a "heart of gold" and would give anyone the "shirt off his back". Don will always be remembered as one of the "best" by me.
