I worked with Don through a partnership between MMS and Vanguard Solutions Group. He and Bill were not just partners but part of our group and friends. Don was always willing and able to lend his time, positive attitude and skills. He was a great example to me. His example will live on through his family, friends and all those he touched.

Daddy - I have been speaking to you and crying for you every day and night...I will post again when I am ready.... I love you so much you were my ROCK! Daddy, if tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven
And bring you home again.

We will miss Don's dedication, his enthusiasm, his sense of humor and his wisdom.

To Janet and Don’s family you have my sincerest wishes of sympathy for your loss and grief.
Don was a pleasure to work with - a professional who was always upbeat.
We worked together on many client sites plus the user conferences and training sessions. Even when we weren’t working together, we would cross paths at Houston’s Presidents Club as we were both on our Friday Evening journeys home. It was great to see Don’s friendly face during those layovers. I will

Sadly I did not get a chance to meet you Don, however I know your children, and how they all loved and respected you so very much! You were a source of strength, compassion, support and unconditional love for them, and raised them all to be such amazing people. I know that you will continue to watch over them, guide them, and shed light for them on their darkest days. The sun will shine forever brighter, as one of God's
