Don and his son were a delightful pair of business men who knew their job as professional home gutter experts. My wife and I were shocked to learn of their demise at the hands of a hit and run driver. Don was quite a character as he could make one laugh easily. His son was quite efficient in carrying out his fathers orders in setting the rain gutter exactly in the right position, and going up a two story ladder to fix our upper second story gutter.

Those of us who had the opportunity to talk to Don will miss his friendly and well verse communication style. I spoke with his wife Dixie and learned of the tragedy demise. All we can do for her is pray for her husband and son now missing from her life.
