Kozik Family.
T was saddened to read of your "Dad's" passing. I enjoyed the many conversations we shared. Don was an accomplished craftsman and taught others the intricacies of this work. May he rest peacefully in the Lord's gentle and caring arms.

I am so sorry to learn of Don's passing. He built our first home and we couldn't have been any luckier to have not only an expert craftsman, but such a genuinely nice guy.

My favorite memory of Don was when he was building my parents addition to their house and we were helping finish moldings for around the windows and doors. I had the hiccups really bad and was standing next to him and my dad while they were talking, and Don turned towards me and screamed “HEY!!!” He intentionally scared the hiccups right out of me! We laughed so hard! The hiccups were gone! He will be missed!

Rest peacefully, Don...Semper Fi!!

To Paul & the Kozik family, We are so sorry to hear of your father's passing. Donald was
truly an accomplished builder and craftsman. In 1989 we hired Donald to build our home and it was a most pleasant experience because of his professionalism.
