    I always enjoyed Don when he lived at Babcock Place, his stories of North Lawrence and growing up when Lawrence was a smaller community. My young son was entranced by the idea that this was the same town he was growing up in. Don’s laugh was infectious and lightened the mood in any room.

    Hi Sonny, Orv and Sue.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Donnie’s passing. We have so many good memories from my living near you guys on Elm Street. W e had many good memories back in the mid to late Sixties. Donnie drove me to pick up my first date, dropped us off at the Granada Theatre, and picked us up after the movie, while I was in Ninth grade. He could really hit that softball, when played many years at the ball games. Was it Dunbar he played for? I think he drove the dump truck for that company for many years. Call me anytime you want at 785-766-0024. Steve Snavely
