This is a heart rending loss of a dear friend. Don will be remembered with fondness by me and a lot of the Stout family. He surely laid a lot of us to our final rest and it was always like he was a part of the family. He had excellent skills and a manner of making us comfortable that was 'above and beyond' the expected.
May God give grace and peace to all who mourn his loss by the Holy Spirit through Christ our Lord. +

Am very saddened to hear of Don's passing. Worked for him for a short time as an EMT at Leathermann-Morris Funeral Home. He was in charge of my father's funeral (Dane Cage) and did a tremendous job. Great man, very friendly, great businessman, very understanding, awesome boss and he will be missed. Thanks for the memories, Don. RIP friend!
P.S. Tell my Dad I said hey and miss him!

John and I are so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He was extremely helpful to my family and me when we were planning my parents' funerals. I will remember always how caring he was and how he made sure they had socks on! He was a true professional and will be missed. Your family has our deepest sympathy.

Don was such an amazing man! He is wise and kind. When our son passed away, he came in to help us when we didn't even know how to go on. We are forever thankful for all he did for us. Don was caring and loved what he did. I am so blessed that God allowed us to cross his path. We will pray for his family in this difficult time, knowing that they are missing him deeply.

All our Love!!!
