Condolences

don may have retired a long time ago but never stopped being a pastor. We always enjoyed an opportunity to greet him after services at Christ United Methodist Church which he attended as long as he could after retiring. Don was always a pastor to the flock, wherever he was. We will always be thankful for his pastoral visits to my mother while she spent her last months at Asbury Heights. She passed away there in 1999. Thank you Don.

What a special man. A twinkle in his eye and a ready smile - he made you happy just to see him. In his later years he was a gift to Christ Church; I'm sure other churches were also blessed by his life and ministry. Well done, good and faithful servant.
