Always enjoyed working with Don. We called him " Daddy Don" because he was the senior member of the set-up crew. My condolences to the whole Goss family. This man will be truly missed.

I had so many good times with Don running up
and down the roads moving houses. He always did
a great job as escort / pilot vehicle driver. Always
considered him a great friend to have. He even
tolerated all of the nicknames we called him.
