"My heart and sadness is shared with Dons family, I love you all. I really can't say enough about Don. we exceeded a friendship that spanned more than 4 decades. Every one of those brought many memories. My wife (Sherri) and I called our first ten years of friendship with Don as the "glory days" she always referred to those times as the most memorable and most fun times of her life. I wont ever forget this guy and why wouldn't I. Our friendship will stand as a testimont to what a friendship is really about. Thank you Don for all those great memories "

" It was with a sadheart that I write this note for my friend, Don. Known by his close friends as DISCO DON! I met Don in 1978 at the Cadillac Sands, Gaslight Dance Lounge. We became instant friends. He was kind, full of enthusiasm and always willing to lend a helping hand I was a DJ at the Lounge, spinning Disc. It was a remarkable 3 years. Don was introduced to Scott Partridge (deceased) a Radio Announcer at WATT and then we met Art Wilson. the Fab Four. Don was quite the Dancer and I remembered when he walked into the Lounge with his 3 piece White Suit. How about dressing up with Scott Partridge, as the Blues Brothers. Winning the best dressed first prize. Our Thanks to Art Wilson that had a re union party in Grand Rapids years later. Inviting and Including "mak" the Ethiopian Refugee who our friend...and frequent the lounge often. Ironically, I visited Don at the Traverse City Hospital while working. He passed just 1/2 hour later RIP Disco Don. Keep dancing with the Angels. Thanks for your Friendship and Memories. Mike Vincent , A Friend October 14, 2019 | Warren, MI | Friend "
