I will never forget Don. He befriended me when I was the new kid from Washington in the 8th grade (8-16 at Pleasant Hill Intermediate). He was so welcoming to me when I was very insecure and trying to live in a very different world from my experience in life up until then. He always had such a great smile and I can still see it if I close my eyes. Rest in peace Don.

Don grew up around the coner from us on Oak Park Blvd. we spent a lot of time as kids playing down in the creek by the school. Don went on to be a Alaska state trooper, where they taught him to fly. His patrol area was huge. He worked with fish and game,because of the thousand miles of area he had to cover

I only knew Don in a general way but it is so nice to read both Jim Belding and jim Forneys' comments.

It's funny how those memmories and feelings are there just below the surface!

I am so sorry to hear about Don.  I lost contact with him just before the time of his passing.  He was living out in the woods in Idaho enjoying being the mountain man that he was.  He was a sweet soul.  Namaste, Don!

You are right Paul. Lovely to read about classmates thoughts about Don. I didn't know him well but remember a friendly outgoing guy. It's sounds like he lived life just the way he wanted.

I always liked Don so much & remember him fondly. I lost track of him straight out of high school & now I regret that our paths never crossed again. He was a dear, dear soul & it saddens me to hear of his untimely death.
