As you know, many of my memories with Don have to do with food. We are going to miss his steak that literally melted in your mouth, along with everything else that he cooked. He always showed appreciation for the herbs from my garden and knew exactly what he wanted to do with them. I very much appreciated how much he loved you, Jewel and the way he took care of you when you when you were sick. I feel privileged to have been friends with the two of you. And I'll always be here for you.

We have known Don for many years, and even though we only had a VW when we first met him, he treated us like it was a Porsche, and liked to joke me about it by calling me Doctor, and telling me he was going to charge me top dollar, but of course he never did, he was a great guy and will be missed by everyone whose life he touched. Heartfelt condolences to Jewel and all of the family. Pete & Adele

I was so sad to hear of Don's passing! He was a terrifically talented mechanic and took care of 2 of my Porsches over a span of 27 years. He always had a smile and we just enjoyrd chatting abour cars and boats! He had a keen intelligence and was very good at problem solving. I did not know he was also a Wahoo but am not surprised given his wit and charisma. Don had integrity and character sadly somewhat rare in today's world. He will be missed and my heartfelt condolences go to Jewell and the rest of his family. Hope to attend Sunday's memorial at the K of C. Respectfully , Dr Bill Cooper

Don was a longtime friend and pilar in the local Porsche community. He was one of the most skilled and honest mechanics you could ever meet and always ready to help out a friend. Don's nickname was "El Primo" and he was an avid SCCA racer in the 70's driving Formula V and Super Vee's as well as other cars. He had an incredible sense of humor and was always ready to offer up one of his colorful stories. He also enjoyed his sailboat and was a huge gun enthusiast. Don created many friendships over his lifetime and truly was a larger than life figure. Don's probably up in heaven right now spinning an incredible yarn. El Primo, you will be missed. Condolences to Jewel and Don's family. I'll be at the service in spirit only because of an obligation racing my Porsche. I'm sure Don would understand. Farewell my friend.
