Colorado, 1993

Don’s farewell celebration is planned for Saturday, August 10, 2013. The location is still to be determined. Check back for updates as it gets closer!

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to one of the following organizations:

  • Buckner (the organization that ran the orphanage he attended), 600 North Pearl St., Ste 2000 Dallas, Texas 75201
  • The National Rifle Association
  • A conservative or Libertarian political organization
  • Any scholarship fund – Don was a big believer in education

    I didn’t know Don all that well because I didn’t see him often. Yet he always treated me as if I were an old friend. He was kind and easy-going and humorous. It was always fun to be around him. I especially remember a trip out to a winery, followed by lunch at Mandola’s. Rest in peace, Don.

    The world without Don is hard to contemplate. He was my go to man. He always had the answers to my questions from how much water I could collect in my rain water systems during a rain to how did you tell me to get this gun open to clean it. He taught me so much. He was a very good friend and I will definitely be there.
