Anne and Family- This is a lovely tribute, I am so sorry for your loss. It is easy to understand why he would refer to Anne as the “joy of his life”.

I remember Don for his friendliness and eagerness to help. He was unlucky to depart in the middle of the pandemic but lucky to have the love and support of Linda, Pat, and Lin. RIP.
Just spotted a typo–Lyn, not Lin
Prayers for Linda and the family. We are so sorry for your loss.

What a beautiful tribute. Much love and prayers to Linda, to Scott, and the rest of the family.
Don was a familiar face at St. Edwards church and Knights of Columbus Council #6546 activities such as our annual fish frys. I have fond memories of the commardarie we shared at our socials and serving meals. I visited Don during his stay at Laurels of Willow Creek, talking about the many activities at St. Edwards and he proudly talked about his family. Don is now at eternal peace with the Lord. Eternal rest grant unto him oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed. My sincere condolences to the family.
Loving, caring and a fun person to around, as John’s twin Don was always a special brother-in-law and uncle to us. His nephews, John Jr. and James fondly recall their conversations with Uncle Don on a variety of topics and life experiences.
Much love and sympathy to Linda, Scott, Carrie and Anne.
May he rest in peace.
I loved the stories Don would tell me when he would come to the office. His love of life and love for his family was evident. He will be missed. God bless the family.
We are very sorry to hear about Don’s passing. He was a character and made my dental office rowdy when he came in, but it was ok!!!
He was one of my first patients when I arrived in Midlothian.
I enjoyed going to lunch with him. I remember the day that Anne finally found out that her dad really was at lunch with a friend, and it was me. We usually went to Q and had very interesting chats.
He will be missed.
Dr. Dennis Zeidler and family.
