Ruth, I am so sorry four loss. I'll always have fond memories of our fellowship and trivia team at the American Legion Post with you and Don. His sense of humor was epic. Praying for comfort for you and your family. After my wife passed, I've learned to draw comfort from good memories of our 45 years together. Reply to this comment

Ruth, no words can express the deep sorrow we feel for you and your family. John and Don roomed together in Oberlin and became friends. Don was the best man at our wedding and John was the best man at yours . We shared many fun filled hours together . Lots of fond memories remain. May God's love and mercy comfort you all .

Dear Ruthie, I am so sorry for your loss of Donnie. I was a member of his team at the FAA for several years and he was one of my trainers. He must have done a good job with me because I lasted until 1981! He will be remembered here in Ohio. Reply to this comment

Ruth and family, I'm very sorry for your loss. My memory of Donnie are of friendship, laughter (lots of that), playing ball together, and get-togethers after. Anne has been gone for three years, but she also loved our friendship. What a great group of guys! Your friend from Wellington, Ohio, Mark. Reply to this comment

Ruth, Becky, Jenny, Lori and family - we have been blessed to be friends with all of you for many, many years!! My heart goes out to all of you. Don was a very good man, a loving husband, dad, grandpa and friend! I so enjoyed our breakfasts Ruthie with you and Don after Bob passed. You both helped me through some very difficult times! I’m certainly going to miss Din too! I pray Don and Bob are together playing golf, pool, cards and I know they are both watching over us!! May The Good Lord give you all the strength you need to get through this difficult time! I love you all so much! God Bless you Don! Tell Bob I’m still wearing my ring and I keep him in my heart! I believe and pray Ruthie and I will be rejoined with you both when The Good Lord is ready for us! You know I am here for you Ruthie! God bless you all! Reply to this comment
