(Leduke, Solinko) Savini where they traveled the continental United States by motorcycle. Donald enjoyed talking to people in every state and around the world on his Ham Radio. He encouraged many others to also join in on his Ham radio hobby, Donald would was the type of guy who would help anyone out,m whether it was doing body work on his friends and neighbors cars. Helping them get their cars to pass inspection or giving the shirt off his back. If you asked Donald for help, he would show up.
