Dave and Natalie I am sorry to hear that your father has passed on. I remember the first time I met your father. He was just hired on to the city and he was visiting every department to acquaint himself with the job. You were with him and you were a little boy. I showed you the fire truck and the station. Many times since then I have met your father and I really liked him. He seemed like a happy person, was a pleasure to talk to and he seemed like a real gentleman. I am sad to hear that I will never meet him again. RIP Don.

So sorry for your loss of Don. I will always remember him telling his corny jokes and then laughing so hard. I always laughed too but I think it was more at his laugh than the actual joke. You will also remember the things that made you laugh and cherish that laughter.

Fran & Mike Perkins

David and Natalie, we were saddened to hear the news of Don’s death. Mike remembers him so well during their years together in the engineering department at Elliot Lake. He was always cheerful....smiles enough to give away. Elliot Lake was fortunate to have had him for all those years.

David, Natalie and family. I am so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. I first met him when I worked for the civil engineer in town Pam Townsend. Your dad and I would talk and laugh a lot as Pam did many jobs for the city. After that every time he and I met he always had a smile and we would talk. He always remembered me. May your memories help you through this difficult time.
