  1. I’ve known Don since Jr. High in Bozeman. He always attended our high school reunions and was just a great person. Not many of the class of 47 left but he was one of the best.

  2. I was saddened to hear about your father but great-full I had a
    chance to see him again at the Genty reunion several years ago. He
    mentioned that he sometimes got to Seattle and I was hopeful of having him
    visit us at our home. I remember him from when I was a kid but had not seem him until the reunion. But my mother, when she was alive, kept me up to date on his life. She was very proud of his accomplishments. By all accounts it was a life well lived!
    My heart goes out to you and your family.
    Sincerely,
    Jerry Dinndorf

  7. Dear Jane, Dennis and family,
    I’m sorry for the loss of your Dad. I remember always seeing him at your sporting events when we were in school and would run into him now and then over the years at places around town. He always had a smile and was pleasant and kind. Sending you thoughts of love and peace, Melonie Sheard Housman

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, especially during these difficult times of grieving the absence of Don.
