Don was a regular of mine at the Green Mill for well over a decade. It was very rare to not find him in his favorite booth on Thursday nights. He truly loved the music and was always generous to us waitresses as well as the lucky friends and strangers that sat with him. I am reminded of him every time I see a $2 bill. He was a character for sure and I won’t ever forget him! RIP, Don, I will drink a Schlitz (in a glass) and toast to you, sir! Condolences to his friends and family. Cat Shively

My deepest condolences to Don's family. A late friend of mine & l met Don at the Green Mill several years ago. He graciously offered to share his table with us. On Tuesday nights, that table subsequently became the place to come to to have a great time for old & new friends. I will miss him, but at least I have very fond memories of those many nights. Most Sincerely, Joe Urbancik

Uncle Don can’t believe you are gone! I will hold the memories and wisdom you have shared with me over the years! You were the epitome of what a Good person was never judged. I learned so much from you and will miss our weekly conversations. I am truly glad to call you my uncle and can find solace in knowing you lived a great life while here on earth and now you are back with Auntie Dorothy! Thank you for everything and always being a great uncle!
