Don was an accomplished landscape designer.  He had a fine, artistic eye.  Although not an architect, he delighted in home design.  He designed for us a privacy wall, wooden walkway, and a handsome "pergola" that provided shade to our back deck. Of course, he also designed the landscaping to go with it.

During the 90s, Don kept a small, one lung inboard boat in the boathouse behind our house.  He would come by on Sundays and take it out to putter around the bay.  it was painted in a rainbow of pastel colors.  When he'd come back, more often than not, he would give us a grouper that he said he had caught.  We know he had "caught" it at Frenchy's seafood market.

Don had serious health issues most of his adult life,  He never complained. The passing of anyone is a time for sadness.  It was especially so in Don's case.
