    Judy and DJ I’m so very sorry for your loss. I feel your pain. This has to be exceptionally difficult at a time like this.

  • Miss him so much he helped me when I first came to Philadelphia.
    He was such a tees with the way I pronounce my words. Wiglieese gum.

    Very sorry to hear. Doc introduced me to my first football pool.; probably not a good thing. Always loved talking Birds with him. Operations Hall of Famer! You ll be missed by all who knew you

  • Don was, is a great man. Who says greatness stops at the end of this life. Not me! Always kind, always a gentle man. I will miss hearing his stories, miss his “Hey Janie” when I walked in the house. Miss him sitting at the end of the table at holiday meals. He overcame many things in his life and almost reached 92 years old.
    Judy, you kept this man going with your years of attention. and love!
    I hope the memories and love you shared give you some measure of comfort now. Love you and DJ.

    The world has lost a legend! Don taught so many people over his career and life. He was always willing to share his vast knowledge and skills, usually with a funny story. I’m so happy that I was able to work with Doc, he truly made the world a better place. ❤️

    Doc was truly one-of-a-kind at the Corps of Engineers ! If you hadn’t been pranked by Don in your time at the Corps, something was wrong with you !! So sad to hear of his passing, he will always represent some of my fondest memories of my years at the Phila. District. May God bless Don and his family.

  • WISHING HIM A HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN…..he would be 92. Love you Don…celebrate!
