My condolences to Dons entire family. After working with Don at Aronsons for about 30 years, i was always amazed how sharp his memory was in the saw department. He knew part numbers of all the steel bars like they were written on the back of his hand..will never forget his joyful laughter and what a pleasure it was working with him all those years at the plant. I'm sure he is now looking down from above and has everyone cracking up with laughter.. Rest in peace Don, you will always be remembered.. Kevin Roblee

When I was little and first met my cousin Donny on their farm in Sardinia, I initially found it awkward talking to him because of his speech impediment. He, however, was genuine and had a real knack for working on and enjoying cars. That became an interest of mine also, and I soon discovered even more what an interesting person he was. I never remember him saying a bad word about people and he always seemed happy about his life. He leaves this world a better place because he was in it. RIP Donnie.
