I met him only once, about five years ago in Fort Yukon. I helped him unload a lawn mower out of an airplane and load it in the back of his truck.
We had a good conversation about Trump.

It sounds like he did a bang up job for Alaska. RIP.

I used to have respect for him until he started voting with the democrats for the inflated spending, leading to the inflation we now have. He was a trapper after all and a member of the ATA and stuck up for us, even put his hand in a trap in congress to show they were not dangerous.

RIP

Men as good as what it sounds like he was are harder to find.

Not only was he a trapper, but back in the 1970's he was the Alaska Trappers' Association Trapper of the Year!

NO other state's trappers can say that!

RIP Don. Congressman for All Alaska...
