    I worked with Don at Kearney & Trecker and G & L and was shocked to hear of his passing and his battle with cancer. Expected to see Don on the Golf Course with his friendly personality and
    With our deepest sympathy.

  6. I didn’t know Don very well. I was in the golf league with him for only 1 year. I always remembered that he was honored at the end for losing 0 balls through the year and could drive the ball quite far.
    Small world – I grew up in West Allis. I did not attend Nathan Hale but played baseball for them and Tanner Paul. Wish I would have known.
    Also remember Don for his smile.
    God bless his family and friends.
