We had the pleasure and honor to know Don and the DeNardis family as parishioners at St. Thecla. Don was truly a loving and caring husband, father and grandfather. A wonderful example of true Christian family man who lived and shared his faith. Our Lord has called Don home after 73 years to rest in His peace.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, And let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

I will never forget his talks about Parenthood during the St. Thecla marriage preparation classes. So insightful and full of humor, very inspiring!

I will not forget his quick smile, his teasing ways and most of all his giving heart to all. It was obvious to see that Don's greatest happiness was his family. He brought joy to those at St. Thecla and he will be greatly missed. I pray for MaryAnn and the family that they are comforted knowing he is with the Lord and free from pain. You now have a special angel to watch over you all.
