Lanette, Jimmy and Julie and your families, so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He was one of a kind and always had a calm demeanor about him. You could count on Don and he could fix almost anything. And more than 40 years ago, Don and Lanette set up a blind date for his cousin Susie to meet an engineer who worked at the almost 43 years later we are still together. God welcomed a new angel to heaven and the world lost a saint. May the Lord grant you peace in this time of sorrow. While he has departed this earthly life, we will always celebrate the legacy of a wonderful man.

Healing prayers for all those left to cherish Don. Don was my first landlord when I move to Big Spring right after graduate school. More so than that, he was a wealth of information and kindness to a displaced guy learning about the refinery works. So many fond memories and stories to remember Don. I am most blessed that our paths crossed.

Don, what a wonderful and caring friend. You mentored a young man right out of college on his first job assignment. You were a leader and taught me well with patience, a trait I had carried for the past 47 years. You and your family always showed us love ❤️ and we will cherish the memories forever. Don, Rest In Blessed Peace.

Lanny, Jimmy and Juli, there are few people in life that one can call a true friend and mentor. Your husband and Dad was that and more to me. Never will I forget to cherish the good times we had not only while working, but sharing life's ups and downs and all the pleasures of raising our families together. Rest in peace friend until we meet again.

Don is a ONE OF A KIND man- and always will be- beyond words to discribe. He was loved and respected by all who had ever met him without question. Don was a deep thinker and alway had a solid answer for any question. He many times would not express what he knew that allow you to work out the answer on your own. All in his approach to get your self solving answer-- that he trusted you to find and reveal. Then you would see the Don smile of accomplishment. Don was always slow to anger [maybe never seen] and always looked and landed on the lighter funny side/positive attitude. He had the ability to recall most every detail of complete issues as he had his exact written notes-- he always had facts/figures and data stored of just in case times. Don/ole friend and I had many a conversations- even when no words were said out loud. Known by many/loved my all/ and smarts beyond description with talents that were self evident- Don was exact. Don was always the family man/good husband/father/grandpa/great grandpa who always had pride in their accomplishments. Don one GREAT CHRISTIAN MAN was BLESSED by GOD'S SON. RIP ole friend you taught me so much

I'm so sorry to read about Don. He was a good man. A rare thing these days. He was one of the best bosses I ever had at the refinery. He saw my potential and pushed me further because of it. Prayers for his entire family. Rest in peace Don.
