I had the pleasure of working with Don at the YMCA. He was always so kind and funny. I loved working with him; he definitely saved me a couple times with his ability to fix practically anything. I'll miss him. Thinking of his family! Rest in peace, Don!

Doreen, boys and family of Don, we are very saddened to hear of Don's passing.
Don was always such a sweet and caring dear friend as we were growing up. It was always nice to come home to our home out on Lynch Church Rd. and upon pulling into the driveway we would hear a friendly voice say, "Hey Gumby!" Mom and dad always liked that you were their neighbors. We will always be eternally grateful for that neighborly kindness. They really did love you both, and the boys. As we all do!
We are thinking of you all today, and saying prayers to be with you in your day for Don. Rest peacefully Don, you are a special man and will be missed by all.
Bruce (Gumby )and Sue Quimby
