I work with Don in the 80s in the meat department at IGA. I could not ask for a nicer guy to work with, he taught me a lot. He came in with smile and always had a conversation. He will be missed.

He was such a good guy, so sorry for your loss. I worked with Don for several years at IGA, he was in the meat department and I was in the bakery. He was always smiling and so kind hearted. So rest high brother Don......from Sandy Ford Mather
