Don slipped quietly away from us at 11:36pm Tuesday night at his home in Monarch Beach, California. Trudy was at his side. They celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary on February 28.
Don had fought a valiant battle against chronic lymphocytic leukemia since 1992, and had recently been treated for lymphoma. He was suffering from a lung infection, but was not hospitalized and his death came as a shock. Trudy said he died peacefully.
A memorial service with family, friends and fans will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
I’m sure I speak for all Don’s friends and fans as we share our sorrow. May God hold his precious family: wife Trudy, daughter Heidi, son Jeff and their families close in His loving embrace.
