  • I’m very sorry to hear about the passing of my friend and former band-mate Don. I met Don in the 6th grade and we knew each other from then thru high school. We played together in bands in the 70’s & 80’s and had a lot of good times together. Sadly we lost touch with each other over the last 10 years or more. He was a good guy, I loved him like a brother and I will miss him very much. Ride on Don.
