The workers at Ligoris are sad at the passing of Don. We enjoyed having him and his wife and daughter come in and eat with us. He always had a smile and a good word to say to everyone. We all enjoyed talking to them and enjoying what he had to say. He will be greatly missed. All of our thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family at this time. If there is anything that we can do for you, please let us know.

I grew up down the street from Don and his wife. He worked with my Uncle John at Hill Air Force Base and I never heard a bad word about him. He was a gentleman and I always looked up to him as a truly great neighbor and friend.
