  1. Dear Don, my sister Joanne could not have said it better. You always had a smile on your face, made us laugh a lot and never said a bad word about anyone. We could have all learned that lesson! Yes you were in our family a long long time through all the births, deaths, weddings (oh yes Paula’s day),parties events, and yes at Ma’s house every Sat nite. And it all dates back to when you dated my mother even before she met our father. As Joanne said in her message, say hello to Daddy, Paula, Laura and all our others who have passed before us…and see if you can find that Paul somewhere…Rest in Peace! Love Barbara

  2. Don – you had the best personality and I will always remember the saturday night dinners at Skippy Grandma’s house. You will be missed. I will forever remember the trip to Pennsylvania when you unfortunately chose the wrong facility to go in and I had to run to tell my mom. Rest in peace….Love – Kevin

  3. Don you were truly a special man and the best godfather. I am so happy that you were in my life and I got to see you often, while growing up. You were the easiest person to get along with and most socialable, able to have a conversation with just about anyone. You will be greatly missed, but always remembered. Watch over us from above with all our other angels that have past before us. We love you!!

  4. Don, you have been around all my life and always had a way of laughing, especially imitating the way some girls would put mascara on in the car while driving to work, I can still see you doing that now. You were always a part of the Boyles’ life with our Saturday night dinners and the fun pool parties I had. You are going to be sadly missed. Take care of all who have passed and hope you are with daddy and having a great time like a free angel. Give Paula a jingle while you are there.

    We all love and miss you.

  5. To our special and dear friend. Don, you were not only survived by your nieces and nephews – you were survived also by your loving and long time extended family of more than 75 years – almost a lifetime of love and support from Marge and her daughters and their families and also your special god-child, Karen. We all shared so much together along with our yearly vacations with you to Amish Country, which you so enjoyed, the laughter, the parties we had and most especially the Saturday nite dinners at Marge’s every week for so many years of which you were a huge part. We are so deeply sorry you are no longer with us. The memories we all have of you will never be forgotten and will always be with us – you had character, a smile always on your face and a personality unlike anyone we knew and you were THE BEST!! You will be missed. We love you, Don. God bless you with peace. (say hi to Paula and Laura and daddy – give them all a kiss.)
