Miriam, Abigail, Emily, and Tori,

My condolences to you all, and also my admiration for all you and Don's siblings have done this past year to sustain Don's humor up to the last, with your combined forces of love and will defying all medical expectations.

Don's dry wit and pure friendship remain alive in my heart as I'm sure they do with all who were blessed to know him.

with love and loving memories,


April 12, 2017 | STEPHEN & Patricia Jamison - Topsfield, Massachusetts -- United States

Such a joy to know you and your family for the years since we've met. Donald was always that quiet intellectual that Stephen so enjoyed having long conversations with. Yet they also shared that dry 'Maine style' sense of humor that first shows itself with a small twinkle of the eye.

We remember him as a devoted father and husband, caring and conscientious friend, smart and interested in others (and the way they think). He shall be missed, but our memories of Donald are full of joy!

May you rest in peace Don

My deepest sympathies to Donald's family. He was one of the finest people that I have known and his sense of humor was always comforting and uplifting.

Miriam - we wanted to let you know we were thinking of you and your girls and sending all our love. I have lovely faded memories of all of us in CaptIva and Donald loving to make that long flight down. I know chloe has wonderful memories of staying with you in Maine. I know it has been a long journey these past months and how it will be unbearable to not have such a kind and generous and lovIng person physically present but that force of nature will continue within you and your strong courageous children. Sending all my love. Kate

It is hard to believe that Don has gone West as we recognize fellow QB members when they leave us. He was a most friendly fellow and an avid aviator. Don will be dearly missed at the Portland Hangar QB meetings and I extend my deepest sympathy to his family and friends at this difficult time. May all the warm and special memories of Don continue to stay with each person who knew him and bring comfort through all the days ahead. Your friend, Stan

We grieve the untimely passing of a truly fine gentleman, husband, father, aviator. Don's family have many fine memories of the good times and love they shared. I will always remember Don as one of the most caring and dedicated members I ever worked with in the Civil Air Patrol. He will be sadly missed and always revered for the wonderful gentleman he was. Rest in Piece my friend. LTCOL Mike Pellerin USCAP

Don's friendship enriched my life. He was always smiling, never disparaged, held back but always had worthy thoughts and actions when invited to contribute. And how he loved his family, his daughters, his heritage, and, of course, his airplanes. His absence will be a loss to all who had the pleasure of his companionship.

Very sorry to learn of Don's passing. It was a privilege to have known and flown with such a fine person.

April 6, 2017 | Stu Tinker - Bangor, ME -- USA

I am so sorry to hear about Don's passing. As a fellow pilot, he was always fun to talk to at the QB meetings, and always willing to share flying stories. My thoughts are with the family, and my hope is for blue skies and tailwinds for Don.
