Condolence from Carolyn and Gerald Johns on May 31st, 2020 2:14 PM

Our family have many great memories of Don and Mary living across the corner as they grew up. Don was at our house often to share his drywall and masonry skills. Their swimming pool was also a welcome place to cool off on a hot summer day. For that many thanks. Don was often seen cutting his lawn and very long lane way with his electric lawn mower. Not sure how many extension codes that took. LOL. A man with a smile. And so proud of family.
He will be missed by many.
