Condolence From: Bob & Heather Klumpp, Delaware, Ohio
Condolence: Heather and I have wonderful memories of Don. How can we forget our train ride on Operation Lifesaver. How can we forget the breakfast & bike ride we took with you and Jo Ann. We knew then we were out of your league with stamina and endurance when it came to riding bikes. Thank you Don for being who you were. A Friend. A Person and most especially a Gentleman.

Condolence: Dear JoAnn and family. Words are not sufficient to describe the friendship we have experienced with Don and you! The time we spent involved with the Royal Order of Jesters and all the other times of just sharing quality time together. Don was a very special friend and we will miss him dearly. His life will leave a mountain of special memories.

Condolence From: Michael Barber, Benicia, California
Condolence: JoAnn, Jeff, Randy and all. I'm so very sorry to hear of the loss of Don. What a terrific guy he was. I have fond memories of Don from the late '80s as you all were a part of my extended family at that time. From dinners at the Howett's to working with Don on reporting his Operation Lifesaver project, he was always a joy to be around. And, he's the only guy I've known to allow me to drive his brand new Corvette, an experience I'll never forget. It wasn't about the car, but his willingness to share his excitement with a fellow auto enthusiast. My prayers for comfort are with you, along with much love.

Condolence: Dear JoAnn and family,
Bill and I were sorry to hear of Don’s passing. We always looked forward to his (and JoAnn’s) return to Grace in the spring after a long winter. His cheerfulness was infectious and seeing him on Sunday mornings made our day better because of it. Keeping you all in our prayers.
