I was unable to make it to Don's funeral. We were very good friends way back at St Mary HS in Menasha.

To the Geenen family:
My deepest sympathies for the loss of such a wonderful man. I have such fond memories of "Coach" Geenen. I was a member of the Xavier girls varsity basketball team the year he coached. He was kind, gentle, funny, and supportive. I recall the team party he hosted at his home where he served us virgin grasshoppers. He touched my life in a positive way and I will always remember him.
