I first encountered Fr. Don’s work when I was a Volunteer In Diocesan Action (VIDA) under Bishop Charles A. Buswell, in the Pueblo Diocese of Colorado. I used his series on the New Testament for adult education classes. The cutting edge visual aides were filmstrips! Following that – throughout my theological studies including doctoral studies I continued to read, view and listen to anything I could find of his outstanding work. The highest privilege was being invited for an interview with him when applying for a faculty position at CTU. What a joy it was to hear him affirm my hire and inviting me to join the faculty. He was indeed one of God’s chosen and fine-tuned instruments of bringing the Gospel to the entire world – personally, and through the thousands he mentored, counseled, and taught. Gratefully. I rejoice that you now rest in the loving arms of God.
