Please accept condolences on behalf of our family on my great uncle’s passing. Alice Abraham was my grandmother, Dick’s sister. It’s been years since I’d last seen him in Spring Green, WI, but had only fond memories of him. He will be missed; may God comfort his family as only He can.

So sorry to hear about the loss of Don. I worked with Don at Thorne Electric years ago . He was a legend at Thorne the guy that set the standards on how a man should work Give Them 8 Hour and get paid 8. Also was a fun guy to work with made the day go by fast. I give my condolences to Nancy and the family .
