Don had many hobbies: talented artist, ham radio operator, computer specialist and avid reader. He had a wonderful sense of humor and especially liked word play. He loved his "herd of dogs" and always insisted there be more than one in residence. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
