    Don was a good choir buddy at St. Paul’s, Fairfield. I am saddened to hear of his passing. My prayers are with you all.i

  • Hi Daughters and Grandchildren,
    I knew your dad and grandfather while he lived in Stratford, CT. We would bicycle in Lordship and he and friends would return to my house for something on the grill. He also introduced me to Alberta, opera, and the Bridgeport Symphony, and of courseSt. Paul’s choir.
    So sorry to know of Don’s passing. What a great mind conversationalist he had and was.
