Don and I served as trustees for the Nunda Rural Fire Protection District for over 10 years. When I first met him, I was sure he didn’t like me. All he said was “So are you going to make it to the meetings?” I very quickly realized that he actually had a great sense of humor and we became friends. I am deeply sorry for the families’ loss , especially so quickly. Rest In Peace Don. You are proof that not everyone needs to embrace technology. Kathi Knop

I worked with Don on the Des Plaines Fire Department, assigned to the same shift and station for several years. Don was a terrific role model, his attitude and devotion to the fire service and especially the Des Plaines Fire Department was exemplary. Don was a great influence on me and my career with the DPFD. Rest In Peace Brother Don!
