    Don was one of my first friends when I worked at Honeywell starting in 1960. We remained best friends since that time. I loved him like a brother, kind, fun and never cheated at golf or cards (I know this because he told me so).

      Thank you, Bob… Your friendship meant so much to dad. And you’re right, he never, ever cheated! 🥰 Much love to you!

    What an incredibly kind and funny man Don was! When I lost my own Daddy, Don hugged me until I stopped crying, and then offered me the best whiskey I have ever had! A toast to Daddy, friendship, and faith. May you always know he is holding you close to his heart! The times you shared playing cards, sipping beer, eating your beautiful garden offerings, and drinking in life, was surrounded with love, humor and faith as well. To you, Don, and to the blessed hope of seeing you again! Take your rest, Soldier. You’ve earned it. Micky, we wish you and your brother and family, peace.

    I was lucky enough to work with Don, mostly on helicopter autopilots, but maybe C5 too. He was very easy to work with and was receptive to other people ideas. He did tell me once that we should have been CPA’s instead of engineers. Probably had something to do with money.
