For many years Don brought laughs during shared breaks, professionalism during the working hours and smiles always. Jessica we had the privilege of witnessing his adoration of you at a few company gatherings. Our deepest sympathies to you, your daughter and his entire family.

Don and I met when we were working at S&K in Lexington in 1987. We shared the same interest in bowling and soon he became a regular on our bowling teams. Don and I had the opportunity to travel a great deal over the last 26 years and had a lot of good times. He was a great friend who will be missed. Don and I had many great memories of our trips, the Chief’s games and working together, and that is what we all have to hold on to.
To his family, remember the good times and what he loved to do and he will always be with you.
