  1. Donald was technically my uncle since he was my mom’s youngest brother but, since we were only six months apart and we grew up together, he was my “other brother.” The memories of those childhood times still make me smile. Rest In Peace, Donald.

  2. I was totally shocked on hearing of Don’s passing.We were just talking about him and Tom and the fact we hadn’t seen them in quite awhile.Our love and prayers got out to Katie and Donnie and rest of family.

    • Thank you Brian and Alice. I think of you both every time we cross the 1-way bridge!
      xoxo,
      Katie

  3. We are so sorry to here of Don’s passing. we were Postal co workers at the Pittsfield P.O. and I wished he hadn’t transferred to Springfield. He was a great worker and friend, we shared many passions and also went to two NASCAR races with Bruce and Mort ( Pocono 500 ) I loved Don’s sense of humor, and was the only one who could handle the Gravely snow plow! I wish we stayed in touch, Rest in peace Gibbie.
