No love for these threads either. Condolences to the friends and family.Never had the pleasure of meeting him but I can tell enough about him from the postings you all are offering that the loss was truly mine for not having had the privilege.
I just saw this. Don was one of the first people I met in this wonderful community of ours. We spoke at length in the parking garage during WFO-6 while doing our "guard" duties. I learned a lot from him. He, along with OrangevaleFJR, madmike2, Big Chief Stinky Pants, ignacio and several others stuck out their hands to a total stranger and made me feel welcome. I have tried to do the same at every event since then.
