Don was one of the first members of the Apple Squires that I met when I first attended their meetings. He was a very caring individual and a person who it was easy to relate to. I came to know him much better over the years. He will be missed by many of us who were honored to call him, my friend.

Our friend Don was a long-time Apple Squires of the Ozarks computer club member. Although unable to attend Club meetings in recent times, Don was an avid member of our group for 34 years, the third longest of anyone, and kept up with Club happenings via our Worm’s View newsletter and occasional visits from member friends. Don loved spreadsheets and was our Treasurer for many years, developing the Club’s double-entry checkbook spreadsheet that we still use today. He meticulously kept track of all kinds of things on spreadsheets, and transitioned from AppleWorks to more modern formats with the purchase of his new iMac just a couple years ago. He served on our Board of Directors as well. But most of all, Don was a nice guy. And we’ll miss him. Walt Waschick, Treasurer Apple Squires of the Ozarks computer club

Don was a TREASURE. He was my father's Air Force pal in Guam. Don was my support when my father was ill for years and then became a father figure when my father passed. Though many miles separated us between Springfield and Charlotte NC, I could always count on his wisdom, positive attitude and caring advice. He has earned his wings in Glory ... and will be missed. Don and Norma were loving, caring and dear friends to many. We are blessed that they were part of our lives.
