Donna, I am sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I am sorry I will not be able to attend his service. I had a great visit with your Dad at the funeral of another phone man this winter. Your Dad was really great to me in the years we worked around each other. He was one of the funniest and kindest guys I have ever met. He was always smiling and usually up to something. He will be missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him. I hope you can find comfort at this time of sadness. Kevin Lynch

Donna and family, my deepest condolences in the passing of your dad. I loved your stores of him, and how we accidently learned that he worked with my dad at the phone company..... now they are together as telephone company pioneers.... talking old times and laughing about their antics! He will always be with you Donna Jean....

Donna and family, I am so sorry to learn of your father's passing. Through your stories and your obvious love for your father and his for you, you made your friends feel like we knew him even if we never met him. He may be gone but he will never be forgotten so he will always still be with you.
