  1. I met Don on A job we did in Irving Park in 2000 and started calling him uncle Don from the begining. He re- wired a couple of my rental houses and helped my parents also. Don is a fun loving easy going guy that helped me out and always made me laugh. On the Irving Park job I just installed an expensive mirror and with 10 people around Don let out a yell of Mirror Mirror on the wall who is the fairest of all that had all of us in stiches. I was sad to see of his departure but rejoice in knowing where he is. Gary Gentry

  6. To Don’s family, Don was one of the sweetest men we ever met. He started as our electrician and became one of our dearest friends. I will miss playing golf with him-he never got upset-he just had fun. Don had the unique ability to make all his friends feel like they were his best friends. If you were lucky enough to be Don’s friend-you were lucky indeed. We will miss him very much. With deepest sympathy, Fred and Elizabeth Williams
