It is my understanding that we have lost, in my eyes, a legend in the outdoor world and one that I consider a good friend.
You Will Be Remembered Don! Thank you for all you shared with my family and I over the last few years. He fought the hardest fight and I am thankful that I was able to see him just a few weeks ago.

He came up to camp for dinner a few weeks back. Even though his body was giving out and he struggled to find words sometimes his eyes still had that glow of life in them, his spirit was there, we talked about a few outings we had and goddammit... all he wanted to do was deep fry a groundhog!!!

He was loved and respected by many people, many more than I know about. He had dreams for after his recovery, was concerned with those he knew he'd be leaving behind and made sure his family and girlfriend were well taken care of.

He t old me about the bench he was having made instead of a headstone. It has his name, his guide insignia and best of all... a few cup holders. It was to be placed in the woods at his camp so anyone passing thru could have a seat and relax in the place he loved to be. That just shows how much he cared for other people as well!
He influenced the lives of many people, including not only myself but my two boys as well.
