Jeffery and Kyle, I have known Don for over 30 years when we started working together at Ryan Iron. He was a true gentle giant and always the professional when working on our projects. I consider Don my friend both at work and outside of work and will truly miss talking with him and catching up on events in our lives. I am glad I got the chance to see him last month when he came up to Mass. as it had been a few years since I last saw him. My condolences on his unexpected passing. —Steve.

Jeffery and Kyle,
It was a pleasure working with Don. He was like family and will be missed by all. On a personal level I will always remember him for his calm demeanor. Whenever, things would get a little tense he would not get upset but just respond "it is what it is" and move on. I think at times I should follow his advice. It was a privilege to work with your dad. He was truly a great guy.

Please accept our deepest condolences on Donnies passing. We were all sad and shocked to hear of your loss.
Donnie was a kind, gentle , artistic person. He showed his deep love of his sons by the wonder care he gave them growing up. It's to his credit that they are the well educated gentlemen they are today. We are praying for everyone.
