Donald called his wife during the attack, but lost contact. As evidence through his surviving children, Donald was a family man. As evidence through my wife, his cousin, Donald was blessed with both a sense of humor and a sense of good work ethic. I am sure his company will miss him, his family will miss him, but his memory will not be forgotten. God bless.

Coach Spampinato -- that's what I called him when I played soccer at Manhasset High School from 1986-89. I wasn't a very good player, but the Coach didn't seem to mind. He always let me play and he always seemd to care. He was always someone to look up to and have as an encouraging face on the sidelines. My deepest sympathies to his family. He will be missed.

I attended Cortland State University and was a fraternity brother with Don back in the early 1980's. I was extremely saddened by the news of Don's passing. I will always remember just what a great, sincere guy he was. My prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
