  8. Don, I hope you can hear me mate. I spent many good hours with you at Rotary, serving our community. Just one of the many ways you served our community. Nothing was ever too much, and it was always done with a joke and a smile.

    We’ll miss you mate, as will your family and friends.

    Rest in Peace Don.

    You made a difference……………..
