A tribute to a good citizen

It takes men with a passion and dependability to get any process of worth going. Don Ryan was that kind of man.

Although he is no longer with us physically, as of Oct. 8 this year, many of his kind deeds, hard work and accomplishments live on. A tree was planted recently at the local Community Recovery Resources to honor Don for the noble work and compassion he and others put forth to get this important project going. CoRR is a nonprofit organization. Its mission has been to provide a full spectrum of programs focused toward reducing the social, health and financial impact on families and children from all types of drug abuse since 1974. Don had a heart to help these families in need.

We at Olympia Glade Mobile Estates were recipients of the many deeds Don accomplished during the years he and Barbara have been residents here.
