They called him Cannonball. He was a drill sargeant in the marines, a Korean War vet, an Indiana State University graduate with multiple degrees, a husband, a father, a friend, a successful businessman, a witness of history, a teacher of others, a curmudgeon, a joker, a chaser of squirrels, an avid reader, a light turner-offer, a wearer of stocking caps in winter, a newspaper article highlighter, a gambler, an ex-smoker, my friends father and he is gone but never forgotten. It was an honor to be a pallbearer at his farewell. I will miss you Don.
