Sue Ditto, Todd and Heather,says
Rest In Peace, Don. You had a wonderful family that our family enjoyed so much when we all lived on Mustin Drive in Indiana. Your sons were a point of pride for you which says so much for the way you and Ruby raised Todd and Phil. Well done!! God bless. Sue
I have many fond memories of Don growing up. He and Ruby were like second parents to me. Don was the technical and engineering guy who could always figure out how to make something work or fix anything. He was a plus in this world and will be missed.
