He seems to have had a good life. Perhaps short. But well lived. Good fishing!
One of the best obituaries/eulogies EVER
One could do worse.
It seems apparent he was loved, and tolerated, and left a legacy of folks gifted with humor.
...and may Light Perpetual shine upon him!
I wonder how many of the folks told Don all those good things while he was yet alive?
I suspect he wrote it himself. That seems to happen a lot in the saner parts of the Pacific Northwest.
He didn't write it himself. From the comments on the page linked:
"This is a perfect tribute to Don, I’m so proud of my girls for writing this. Don always kidded me as being the perfect mother-in-law, he rarely had to see me as I will only go to Alaska in the summer when he was out fishing. He always sent me a big box of king crab or halibut for Christmas. He will forever be in our thoughts."
