Don was a 9-time winner of the Dandenong Club Championship. He lost his vision completely from an eye disease but still remained a strong chess player using a Braille board and his opponent telling him what move was made. Don was a good friend with myself and my mother who shared their weekly phone call talking mainly about football and the Geelong Football team that they shared a love for.
