To the family of Don, I send my condolences. Don was my first supervisor when I started at the NHDOT in 1989. Though Don retired not long after I started I was able to get reacquainted with him years later when I became part of the "construction golf team"
Please enjoy the attached photo from one of our golf outings.
Don was always a gentleman!

My 20's were defined by the DeCamp house. I have such wonderful memories of weekends and holidays spent at the house on Union St. They are together having afternoon cocktails and I am sitting here having one in their memory
