With great sadness we bid farewells to our friend Don McKivett whose uncompromisable free spirit manifested both in his life and in his dancing. Engaging and entertaining personality, interesting conversationalist, a curious mind and last but not least – a man you wanted to to spend time with. He passed suddenly in the night hours of Sunday June 23. Visitation and service for Don took place Friday, June 28th in Reeb Funeral Home in Sylvania.
Farewell party was in Tom Wilson’s house in Sylvania on Saturday, June 29th.
