June 8, 2023


Moved into the mysterious unknown after departing his body which had been his home for more than 92 years. Born on Long Island, raised in Geneva, he lived in Upstate New York spending most of his professional life as a reporter and editor for the daily newspaper in Geneva, Syracuse, Rochester, and Utica. Predeceased by his father Bob, mother Eleanor, ex-wife saint Helen, beautifully sensitive daughter Cheryl and life-long friend Mary Ann Baumgartner of Geneva. Survived by his loving companion Linda Chamberlain, his son Gary, daughter Susan, son-in-law Kevin Thompson, granddaughter Katelyn and grandsons Michael and Nicholas. He also leaves behind loving family members, friends and a cold martini. 

During his years of retirement Don found a number of ways to keep upbeat and motivated. He enjoyed Broadway Theater League, Geva, Syracuse Football, Basketball at Brockport and taking long walks in the park with his dogs. He was a member of the Webster Democratic Committee, enjoyed gardening, attending the First Unitarian Universalist Church, working out and being a hospice volunteer.  

A memorial service will be held at the Chateau at Heritage Square 100 Isla Way, Brockport NY, 14420 on June 30th   at 12:30. Lunch will follow. Interment will take place at a later date. Don will be buried in Glenwood Cemetery in Geneva, New York. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the anatomical gift program at The University of Rochester.
