Don was also a NASCAR fan, supporting Bill and Chase Elliot. He enjoyed bowling, even winning a father and son tournament with his son, Mo.

May you now enjoy all that God has prepared especially for your eternity. It's been a long time ago, that Clean Sweep (Bill Doren) & Peg Leg (Me) washed down a lot of good grub with a lot of Joe at "The Wagon Wheel" on Wilkins Rd. some 40 plus yrs. ago. You'll never be forgotten. I pray that all who know & love you joy in their memories as we grieve until we see you again. May God Bless !
Amen !

We are very sorry to hear about Don's passing. We cannot remember ever seeing him without him coming over or calling us over to talk. The main topic of our talks was always our families. He was so proud of all of his children and grandchildren. We will be thinking of you today and Saturday and so sorry that we will not be able to attend. Prayers to all.
