Donn was a friend. The was a Phi Psi at KU and graduated with a degree in education. After graduation, he purchased the Radio Shack store in Lawrence. He later sold it to open a classical records store in Crown Center. When that failed, he went into the family business, Stevens Envelope Co., located at 20th & Mc Gee in Kansas City, MO.  When the family sold the company, he moved to Florida and opened a Firestone Tire store. He sold that business and moved to Tennessee to be closer to his wife, Shannon's parents. I remember playing poker at his house on Friday nights with his parents and the local priest. Good people.

Some may remember Donn and Donna Holmes sang folk songs together at a coffee house near the KU Med Center called the "Twelve Plus One". Donn played guitar and Donna sang mostly. They were pretty good judging by the crowds.
