    So many wonderful memories of working with Don at the Sheriff’s Department and seeing him around Walmart. May the Lord provide comfort to all family and friends…

    I think Don waited until Georgia passed away, before he gave in. God rest his soul he was such a wonderful man. He was at church all the time.

    I worked with Don at Coca Cola for many years, and he always came in the door smiling.
    My prayers and sympathy for his family, may they find peace and comfort
    at this time.

    It appears that I am about a year late for this conversation but I didn’t know of his passing.

    The last time I saw Don was in my 18th year – he was an old man of thirty something at the time. Don was a man of understated but undeniable wisdom. One look from him and you just sorta knew he was checking your work, sometimes with skepticism, sometimes bemusement. Over the intervening 50 years or so, at peculiar moments, I would feel his quiet eyes from time to time and be spurred on to do whatever task was at hand that much better, such was his influence on this evolving youth and his subsequent lifetime development. Don didn’t know any of this, of course, (Donnie did) but his legacy was broad. His was a life well lived and I am deeply sorrowed by his passing.
