So sorry to hear of Don's passing. I remember him driving his cat tractor I believe. My dad Thilford rented hayland either by don or land close close to your farm. Very kind man. Sorry for your loss.

Until then, Jesus will be with you to comfort and help you Your friends in Christ, Elsie and Elwood Skarpness

I mowed and cared for St. John's Cemetery for 20 years and always enjoyed visiting with Don when he would drive through and when he brought out the Memorial Day decorations for his parent's stone. I'm so sorry to hear of Don's passing.....he was a kind man. Annette Glennon
