Sorry for your loss, Don holds many memories for our family, especially the auctions and how we looked forward to with our children while being in PC county to our camp which is much improved now. Pioneer Days , CJ Richardsons, French’s Diner and much more. We still use tools from the auctions and especially a Craftsman generator which powered many events for our family and during the Deriechio……it still works today. Nina even met my wife Dora with something we purchased in Charleston to deliver. Love and prayers
