Don was an avid golfer and shared his passion with his family and friends.  He was a member of Sycamore Hills Golf Club, the Fremont Country Club and, after retirement, worked at River Cliff golf course which he enjoyed for several years.  Don’s greatest joy, however, was spending time with his wife of 61 years and his family.

My condolences to the Stotz family. The rounds of golf I played with Don were memorable particularly
our runaway Derby win at FCC. After that day when we saw each other in passing it always was “Hello Champ” They don’t come better than Don.
