Don was predeceased by his mother and father, Della and Nick, and his siblings, John and Louise. He is survived by his children: Anita Goodnow, Steve, Karen (Pat Stoysich), and Greg; his grandchildren: Sarah (William Riley-Land), Sasha Goodnow, and Ben Stoysich; and great-granddaughter, Della Riley-Land. All of his nieces, nephews, and cousins were very special to him, as were his friends. That’s what Don was all about–family and friends. His wit and endless sense of humor were unrivaled, and he had a good time no matter where he was or who he was with. He did things his way and didn’t much care for rules or authority. That led him to become self-employed, first with Hickory Sundries, then the Sportsman Bar and finally D. Faraboni’s Drinks & Eats. And true to form, he had so much fun at these places with lots of pranks and shenanigans. He made many lifelong friends along the way and appreciated each and every one of them. Dad hated being in the spotlight but because we are his children, we’ll have his wake our way. We’ll miss him very much and gatherings won’t be the same without him. Please share your stories with us.
