  1. Don was a very special man. I’ll remember him most for his sense of humor and the many things I learned from him when our families got together. I offer my heartfelt condolences to Carol, Donna, Audra and all the other family members.

  3. It’s hard to say goodbye to a good friend like Don. Remember all the good times, friends and family and know there is one who cares above all-God. Love, Frank & Pat Graves

  4. “Donald Bean” has been a special brother-in-law who had a sense of humor, who understood his sister-in-law’s humor, who was loyal to family, who loved his girls and was always kind to Carol’s sisters. We will miss Don and his Kansas colloquial sayings. Stay Strong, Carol. Love and Prayers,
    Sister Betty
