Hi Avis,

I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He was a real gentleman. My dad(Bill) always spoke very highly of him

I worked with Don at Rockwell, was in the Masonic Lodge, and more importantly, followed him as Commissioner of Scouting in Chatham. There was no finer individual as was Don. He was a wonderful caring person, with a sense of great humour. I recall Ava looking after the scout shop in Eaton's. Thank you Don for your many hours of dedication to Scouting.
