For the family of Mr Hyrns, we are saddened to hear of your loss. So many fond memories of him and your mom. Wish we could go back in time and relive them all over again.
For the friends who knew him, we will miss the humor and his cooking skills. We envy his outdoorsmanship and sense of fareness.
I will think of him while hunting Morels this spring and probably every every spring from now on.
For those who never met him, you missed the opertunity for laughter and wisdom and kindness and an occasional scolding.
With a tearful eye,
David and Patricia Gillish.

We were so saddened to learn of Don's passing! We have been seasonals in the camp grounds for over 30 years and Don became a very good friend. He always came to get fishing reports with my husband, and always shared food he had picked or made. He was so wonderful with the kids and the fishing contest during Bear Lake Days, it started with our sons, and all of our grandchildren.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time, Don will be greatly missed!!
Mike and Sue Frank
