Memories Timeline


  1. I have worked with Don for 11 years and worked side by side night and day. Don was very smart nurse, and knew what he was doing. He was very thoughtful and generous as well and he will be missed

  2. Don was my friend and neighbor. We were inseparable from 4th to 8th grade. He was a true and genuine person. I have never forgotten the friendship we shared. I am so sad at his passing. Rest in peace DJ.

  3. Sorry to learn of Don’s passing. I was a neighbor of Don’s from the old neighborhood where we all grew up and played as kids. My thoughts and prayers are with Don’s family.
