Don left us with this: “The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop, on what day or what hour. Now is the only time you have so live it with a will. Don’t wait until tomorrow the hands may then be still.” (Dick Campbell).
Services: Burial for Don and Mary Eva will be at the convenience of the family.
In Don’s memory, contributions may be made to the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Dept. 1444 Fair Haven Rd., Fair Haven, NY 13064.
