I worked with Don at Kwik Mart and what a wonderful person he was. We both had a shared hatred of processing lottery tickets. He had an amazing smile, infectious laugh and had a big heart. The thing I will remember the most is how much he loved Pat, his wife, and his family. When my daughter began dating some guy named Adam Kincaid, I didn'trealize for quite a while he was Don's grandson. I thought to myself she is in a good family if Adam loves her half as much as Don did Pat she found a good one to spend her life with. I am so sorry for your loss he will be missed, but hopefully there is some comfort knowing he is with Pat the love of his life.

This breaks my heart. Let’s replay my morning yesterday 😔 7:19 am my phone rang like any other day our conversation went the same every morning
Don: “Bobbie!?!”
Me : “good morning don!”
Don: “ how are you?”
Me : “ awe don I am doing ok how are you?”
Don : “well I am talking to a beautiful young lady”
‘Me: “ o really”
Don : (chuckles) “do you have time to bring me up some food “
Me: “o you know we do what are you hungry for today”
My days will never be the same. I have worked here 10 years of those 7 years (at least) and he either came in or called me. I have cried. I walked in today for the first day and did my same routine. Find the phone and wait for don😔 my life is different now but I am a better person to know this man 😘 I am so happy to know you now have your wife in your arms again ❤️


May God give you strength in this time of grief and fond memories
of Donald E. Sievers, CCHS Alumni Class of 1956.
The Alumni of CCHS extends sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers
to Don's family.
