  • Lived two houses down from Don from 1992 until he moved into the care home. We will certainly miss him. Sending condolences from the Moir family. - Posted by: Andy Moir (Neighbors) on: Jun 17, 2021

  • I met Don through his church which was close to my house. We became the closest of friends for years until I moved to the country. We stayed in touch until he is suddenly disappeared. That was when he went to the home where he lived until his passing. I loved Don a lot. I will always think of him and his kindness and humor. - Posted by: Natalie (Friends) on: Jun 06, 2021
