  1. I will never forget Don’s kindness to my Uncle Bernard Larson and other residents at Bishop Noa. He will be missed by many of us.

  2. I first met Don working at Habitat Fence Co. in the early 70’s, and reconnected with him when I took a job driving DATA bus. We got to talk about old times,on our many outings. You couldn’t find a kinder gentler man than Don. He will be missed.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear of Don’s death. I will miss him and our conversations we would have when I would go to visit my Mom at Bishop Noah. He was a very special person.

  4. Uncle Don you will be greatly missed by all who knew you. I will so miss stopping to see you when I would come up home and you always would ask me about your little buddy Aiden my grandson, and you would want me to dial him up so you could talk to him

  5. I was sorry to hear about Don. I worked with him at Habitant Fence Co in Gladstone for quite a few years. He was a very kind and thoughtful man.I went to visit him a few times in Bishop Noa and he was always so happy to visit. Thoughts and prayers to his entire family.
