Connie and Family. I sorry for your loss. I worked with Don for many years at Arbie’s. Don was fun to work with and he never got mad at us if he had to wait for his truck to be loaded. Don aways reminded me of Dewey a lot. We aways gave Don a hard time when he went too S.D. (Dewey loved S.D.). Don would get a good laugh. Next Arbie get together I’ll tell you the whole story Connie.
Sorry to hear about Don - remembering the "good ole days" at Arbie's

Connie and family,
I am sorry to hear of Don's passing. I only met Don the one time I helped clean up the property after the big storm some years ago. But that one time was enough to know that Don was a hard working tough ole man. He will be missed.
Connie and family,
I am sorry to read of Don's passing. He and you are in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry for your personal loss. His brother's Jamie and Robin nearly raised me on Marshall Drive. My favorite quote from my own father came from Danny and I use it a lot. My dad did a lot of carpentry and had ahabit after cutting a board of dropping the board on end to knock the dust off. One day Danny sat watching dad cut boards and then felt he needed to help. Danny dropped board and dad stopped him and asked why he did that? "Just knocking the dust off Francis, just knocking the out off." A great family thanks for the memories. God bless. Michael Carr
So so sorry for your lost Connie & family. Don was one great man, me & my family well miss him. R.I.P. Don.
I love you all very much!!!!! I'm sorry and am going to miss uncle Don very much. God speed uncle, no more pain, and free again to fish, hunt, pan for gold. You will be missed so much by so many. I love you
My thoughts and prayers to Connie and family. Love you and so sorry for your loss. R.I.P. Don.
