Donna, Linda, Mike, and Trish. Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your dad. Such a great, loving , warm and welcoming man. He was always happiest when surrounded by family and friends, and loved it when everyone joined him at Paw Paw Lake. We will miss him and please know that you are all in our prayers. You were blessed to have such a wonderful man as your father.
A donation in his name was made to the Paw Paw Lake Foundation.

How sorry I am to hear of Don's passing. He was definitely a favorite of mine. He always greeted me with a big smile & a bigger hug. I always looked across the lake to see his lights on so I knew he was there. When I didn't see lights on this past summer, I knew things were not well. Yet, when I did see Don, again he greeted me with a wonderful smile & a bigger hug. Bob always checked with Don's pier to see whose boat was the last in the water in winter & whose boat was first in the water in the spring. I think Don always won that game. Of course, we will always remember our wonderful snowmobile trips together. So we will miss our friend Don. But to know that he was surrounded by the people he loved most at the end of his life is a comfort to all. He will be gone but not forgotten. Love to all of you, Joan Lipsig
