Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.

After several weeks of vertigo (dizziness), Don was diagnosed with a brain tumor and lung cancer on Saturday, August 20, 2016. He has since been diagnosed with multiple brain tumors and lesions, cancer in the lymph nodes in his chest, and in his adrenal glands. The cancer is small-cell carcinoma, a very aggressive form of cancer.

The tumor causing the vertigo was surgically removed successfully on Sunday, August 21, 2016.

Don and the family appreciate your support and words of faith, hope and encouragement, and especially humor. Because you know how he loves to laugh! You are encouraged to also post to his Facebook page if you are "friends" with him there.

Thank you for visiting.
