I heard about the service late. Since going to the church I have had several fond remembrances of Don. I worked for him in two sections. They were the two best times of my career. He was a great role model. It was a privilege to work for and with him. My deepest sympathy. Fred Kiekhaefer

To Ruth and Linda. Our deepest and sincere sympathy to you and your family. It was a pleasure to work with Don in Construction at the City for all those years. I still see many contractors. They remember Don. The comments they always say is that whether they agreed or disagreed with Don’s decisions, he was always fair. That says so much about his values and character. I am sorry that we cannot come to the service today. Tom and Jan Rach
