Donnie has been part of my life for 61 years, he, Gerry and I kept in touch while we lived in Waltham and more recently in New Hampshire. He loved the Alton Bay home and enjoyed Florida, both on the water. I will think of him enjoying his life as he did, and all the times he beat me at cribbage. My sincere sympathies to his family. He was a great guy!

Steven and All,
We want you all to know how sorry we are about your Dad. He was a great guy and wonderful Dad and friend. Uncle Bill told us how he was doing in Feb. and being in so much pain. Now he is at peace and up with Meme and Pepe, Jeanne Marie and Reine. I can only imagine all the talking that is going on! Keep the memories close, to give you the strength you need. We will be keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
Love, Jerry, Mary Jane and Matt

So sorry to hear. I was incredibly fond of Don, first as my lieutenant and much more importantly, as my friend. I am sorry I did not get to spend more time with him in recent years, but thankful for a wonderful afternoon together in Florida this past November. My deepest condolences to you all.

When I was a young man I worked for Don as a private investigator, back in the late '70s early '80s. I learned a lot from him and later took those lessons with me to the Houston Police Department. Simply put, Donny was a great guy. I didn't know he was ill and I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to see him and thank him. My condolences to his family.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord. And may the perpetual light shine down upon him. May he rest in Peace. Amen. May his soul and all the souls of the Faithful Departed, through The Mercy Of GOD, rest in peace . Amen.
