  • So sorry to hear of Don and Mary passing. I remember them from my years of playing baseball with and against Bryan and watching our sisters Cheryl and Kristin play when we were even younger. I remember being at their home when we were young and always feeling welcome.
    Prayers to your families at this time.

  • I am very sorry to hear the sad news about Don and Jane paasing away one after the other. I met Jane when she started working for me at WNP-1 during construction. She was very dedicated and hardworker. I met Don at WNP-2. I knew their whole mamily. We pray to Almighty God that the departed souls rest in peace. They were perfect couple and raised a nice family. They will be missed a lot.

    Allan: Sorry I could not attend the funeral due to other assignments planned before.

  • So sorry to hear of the passing of Don and Jannie. We offer our sincere condolences to the Aunspaugh family and friends. Don was a respected person, colleague and friend. He was committed to his family and often talked of them. It was a pleasure working together for many years at Energy Northwest and we often ran into him and Janie around town and at youth sporting events. May they rest in peace.

  • Don was one of my bosses at Energy Northwest in Purchasing for a few years. He was wonderful to work for. Don always talked about his family and all their gatherings. I could tell by the way he spoke of Janie and his family how much he loved them. I met Janie thru Don and I used to run into them all over town after retiring from Energy Northwest. They were always so happy and full of life. Never seen one without the other. One of my sons, Jason Moore, also knew Don and his family. Jason always spoke very highly of Don and his kids (his friends). They will be missed….gone, but not forgotten.
