Memories Timeline


  1. We cherish the many years of friendship with Don and his family. Our prayers are with you in this loss of a special loved one. We know you are looking to the Lord for comfort and strength. Our love, J. B. and Dorothy

  2. We are both very much saddened by Don’s passing. Our thoughts are of the happier times we all had together at church and our special bible study with the “group”. We wish the family all of God’s blessing and comfort at this time but rejoice in the Lord for Don’s salvation. In Christ with much Love.

  3. I was so sorry to read of Donald’s passing….oh, how I recall when he was born!!! My special love to Marie.(If I recall correctly Johnny attended my 4th birthday party in 1929!!!)The Dentons and Pecks have been very special friends!

  4. I will always have great memories of Don. It was nice to still be able to see him as I grew up. My favorite memory of Don was when I was a child and he took me and Paul to see the Dallas Cowboys play in 1979. Thanks Don! Kent Gerstner (210)421-1111 Regards from Helen “Jodi” (210)490-3453

  5. Don and the Byers go back a long ways. I’m told he knew me when I was in diapers. I will always remember the way he could go from one joke right into another and he always got a laugh. I know the minute he sees Mom Byers in heaven, they will sit and he will tell her some of his new jokes. To his family, he will be deeply missed, but he is in heaven where there is no more pain and suffering. Nancy

  6. Heaven is rewarded with a wonderful man !!! We will certainly miss his good humor and love here on earth!! Love, Travis and Alice
