Don Ouellette was an excellent person. Sincere, honest a hard working individual.
While I was his supervisor, it was valuable to know of his activity, contribution and dedication. He was always reliable and participated in all possible activities not needing to be called at it. I pray the Lord received him as he deserves. MMA
