Great guy. I worked with him on and off here at Duke University. He was the equipment rep that I always dealt with. So sorry to hear this.

My sincere condolences to Kelly, Amanda & Family. I just heard the news and I am deeply saddened. I worked with Don many years ago at KJL, we did a lot of fun projects, traveled to customers and even worked together with my current company. He was great person and will be sorely missed.

Prayers of peace and comfort for Don's family. I worked with Don at KJLC and I am sad to hear of his passing. John 11:25-26 "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die."

There are no words to express our deep sorrow for Amanda and Kelly. Although there is a plan on when we leave this life Don was far to young to leave you both. Cherish all the memories of happy and fun times until you meet again. Love Gary and Joanne Hertrich❤️

So many priceless childhood memories. It was a such a different time then. We would play outside in the summer nights to creating custom models out of broken model parts in the drawer in the basement on Loyal Drive to concert going in Don's customized Blue Chevy van. May you rest in peace Don, you will be missed by many. -Rich "Chet" Castillenti
