    From: Scot Woolley (Fishing Friend ) Oh wow, sorry to hear this news. He certainly left a lasting impression with all he touched……I’ll never forget “The Wedge”. I still have a Polaroid picture in my cabin of you (Larry)and Don posing with a mess of huge sunfish that we caught on Little Jessie. One thing is for certain, Don had a way to make anyone around him laugh. 92 is full life and he is fortunate to have had his health for most of those years. I’ll toast a happy hour beer in his name.
