    I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Don for many years at the Sharon Steel Chem Lab. After the closing of Sharon Steel it was nice to visit with Don at Cottage Gardens. He was a good man who was always pleasant to talk to.

    Dear Daoust Family, Please accept our most sincere condolences and prayers of comfort during this difficult time of loss. Don was not only a classmate but our “go to guy” for plant knowledge. He was a quiet man and held a wealth of information on plants or flowers, always behind a smile. We always looked forward to implementing his suggestions; now his legacy. Don’s presence in our community will be missed but not forgotten. Don and Mary (Grace) Yoest
