  3. My sincerest condolences to the Ruckaber family. I have worked with Don for the last couple years and I can tell you he will be sorely missed by all. He was always the nicest guy you could imagine and always had a smile and a friendly greeting for everyone he encountered. Everyone here is completely shocked and saddened by his passing. I hope it is some small comfort knowing that you are not alone in mourning the loss of such a beloved member of our community and family. Thoughts are with you all.
