Don loved his music, Country and Western and Rock and Roll. He could hear a song once and remember it forever. He sang, played guitar, whistled and played mouth organ. He enjoyed Karaoke and often entertained his friends with the “Auctioneers Song” which he did such a great job of. Music brought a smile to his face.
