That's real sad, he was a real friendly fellow.  Always wanted to talk trucks (or anything else).  A conversation took awhile because he was real hard of hearing.  Too bad.

This is just so sad. Don called me a couple of weeks ago and we talked for a long time. He said he was going to sell his Eagle as he felt like he was getting to old to handle it. Those of you who knew Don, he could talk forever and couldn't hear well. He had fought some cancer battles and getting a cochlear implant to help him hear. This just sucks!

I hate this for Carole, she is such a sweet Lady. Prayers to her and her family during this difficult time.  :'(

Kim and I never had the pleasure of meeting Don and his wife. A tragic loss and our hearts go out to Don's wife and family.
