As neighbors of Don's for 14 years we had the distinct pleasure of knowing him well. He wasn't always easy to be around and could be as stubborn as they come, but we loved him none the less. He could be cranky and opinionated, but also kind and considerate. He loved to garden and took great pleasure in watching things grow, though I think he was more keen on watching those that went by on the trail close to the house. He loved to chit chat when he was in the mood and could talk your ears off for hours in the afternoon while enjoying a cold beer or two. He would often talk of his past jobs and how the city has changed, of his children and grandchildren all of whom he loved and was very proud of, his sisters, and friends he made over the years. He loved being outside and truly enjoyed taking care of the lawn and flower beds. He loved to feed all the birds and critters that flew and scampered by. It was always his great pleasure to tease when the Packers lost, even if his beloved Bears also lost. He enjoyed watching the kids grow, even when they were little and loud! He always had treats for them, and loved wearing his glasses & big nose get up on Halloween to "trick" the kids. We will forever miss whom we lovingly referred to as "Grandpa Don".

Tim and family, our deepest sympathies in losing your dad. His charisma and personality made him one of Bob Bleier`s best bartenders back in the 60`s. I'm sure he also did a great job managing the One Hour Martinizing stores. Remember those? Hope you have great memories to cherish and share. God be with you. From Clay and Barb Gardinier`s kids: Leslee, Clayton, Rod, and Bob .
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
