  • Don was truly a fine gentleman and professional in his field I was so fortunate to have Don as part of the Premier team for over 15 tears and yes golf, cars and Jack Astors were some of the memories besides his relationship and success with all his customers were so important to him.Don was truly an example for all in his time with us. Rest In Peace Don Fred Arnold

  • Don was the greatest salesman Peterbilt ever had ! Honest, charming and the willingness to make the customer happy. He will be truly missed !

  • I knew Don when he worked for Eaton Corporation. I was broke down in Timmins and he brought me the parts I needed in his own car. We purchased most of our Peterbilts from him and went many times to Jack Asters. We became good friends through the years I knew Don for over forty years. Lots of good stories and many laughs. He was a wonderful person. He will be missed. RIP!
