We are so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He was like a second brother to us over the years. We so enjoyed getting together with him when we were in town visiting family. It usually involved lunch, laughs and many good memories! We will miss these good times. Our sincere condolencs to his loving family.

To all of Donnie's family,
When I taught in the Sauquoit School System, Donnie was a custodian. And, while I am saddened to learn of his death, his picture in his obituary made me smile as I thought of him and reflected on all the things he did for me in my classroom . He greeted everyday and everyone with that same smile I see in his picture and a genuine willingness to help in anyway he could. He had such a big heart. I am sorry for your loss. Elaine Loomis Cobb
