I only met Don a few times, but he was always a very cordial man. I wish I could have got to know him better over the years that I’ve been with Amy, but I’ve heard lots of thoughtful stories from his children and grandchildren. He was a respected man growing up, who had many business ventures, all while helping raise his children in the San Jose area. I hope to learn more at his memorial.

Hello - I'm one of the Farris girls that lived next door in Santa Clara and grew up with the Maggard kids. Don was a big personality with a warm heart. I don't think he ever met a stranger that didn't become a fast friend. It's been years and many miles, since Santa Clara, but the good time memories are vivid as if it was yesterday. Thoughts and prayers to the family. May God be with you.
