Congratulations Don!! I was needing some electrical work at my Sudden Valley condo so thought I'd see if you were up to it? I'll see how your crew does now that you have decided to take it easy. I wish you well! Kron Family

Congratulations Don! Seems like a life time since you left Alaska but it seems like you have done well, cream always settles at the top! Hugs to Carolyn “Spud”.

Congratulations Don! Since I started with the Crowley ATBs back in 2008 I have been impressed by your drive and tenacity. Your commitment to us as your customer has been impressive. The late night calls, last minute flights, long days never caused you to say no to us. I don't take it for granted. I will miss working out problems with you but I am so glad that you found a man of good character like Jerrad to pass the torch to. Enjoy your family and the chance to do some special things! -Louis

Hey Don, Congratulations on starting the next phase of life! I have had the pleasure of taking care of the insurance for the company for over 15 years. I have always respected how you ran your business, providing a great place to work for your employees and were always ready and willing to do whatever it took to get the job done right. Hope to see you out at Scotty's for a toast! Sheldon

Well Don, a lot has changed since we first moved in next door to the guy with the Triad Electric work van and his pretty receptionist wife and two amazing kids. You shared your love of moose burgers, cribbage, card games and all things in between. You rushed over and helped us out when our washer overflowed and water was pouring out of our dining room lights. I still want to flip the second light switch in bathrooms even though we haven’t lived in the Briarcliffe house in over 19 years. You took a gamble and hired Ken even though he had no experience. You even hired my brother, Tony, and Mike to help them out. Seems like forever ago that your T-side included Zach & Caleb and Dave Goit. Even Don Pratt & Jeff Winton worked there back in the day. It has been amazing to watch you, your family and business grow and expand. Hard to believe you have one granddaughter and three grandsons! We are so proud to know you and to have been a part of Elite’s history for over 19 years. We wish you and Carolyn nothing but happiness and many adventures to come. Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Love Laurette, Ken, Shaye & Makenna

Don, Its been a pleasure to work with you over the years. Your professionalism, knowledge, and always a positive attitude made even the toughest jobs successful. I'll bet you never want to hear "Ballast Water" ever again. You are one of the Elite! Wish all the best, and enjoy your retirement! Rob
