Don was the 1st of the next generation of the Andrews chain & I am the last of the previous. Only 18 months separated us. He was the best big brother to his siblings. Although we didn't get to spend a lot of time together as kids, we did get to enjoy being next door neighbors for a while as adults. He always had a smile &/or a joke. I still picture him laughing as he shoveled his car out of the driveway we shared in the bilzzard of 1978. It was buried in a drift with only part of one headlight visible. He was a good hearted man & will be missed by all who knew him.

I remember all of the family Christmas parties we had in Uncle Don and aunt Sharon's basement. Uncle Don was always laughing and smiling. He used to pull the I got your nose trick on us. He was always joking with us. He used to tell us that olives were elephant boogers. To this day that's what my sister and I refer to them as. I never seen him sad or upset. He seemed to always be so relaxed and happy reminded me of my dad Rick I think they were a lot a like fun, loving, kind hearted, willing to help anyone, jokester. He had a wonderful laugh I will never forget that laugh and smile. Just thinking of it makes me smile his Rosey colored cheeks as he smiled and laughed. He had tones of stories about hunting and fishing . It's like he made everyone around him forget about anything that was bothering them you couldn't be sad or bothered by anything around him because his happy go lucky personality seam to take over the room. We spent some Christmases at a hall but all the family was always there. Also uncle Don and aunt Sharon always made sure santa made his presence for all of us kids to enjoy. He will be greatly missed and always loved . And no matter what olives will always be elephant boogers to me. Love you Uncle Don rest in peace keep smiling that big smile!!

When I was little Uncle Don knew how much I loved olives. He started telling me they were elephant boogers and I believed him for a long time. To this day I still think of that every time I eat them. He had such a kind heart and a great sence of humor. His laugh and the face he would make just like my dads when he laughed is another thing I will always remember. I will miss him so much. Love you Uncle Don.
