Guys I wasn't sure you all had received this sad news so I'll post the entry from the HomeSeer bulletin board.
It is very difficult for me to post this very sad message. I just got email for Don's daughter Lynn that our dear friend passed away.
Don was known here as "kyham" and lived in KY.
I still can't believe this. I met him a few months ago when I was in KY. He was great guy. We all will miss him!
At least I'm glad to hear that he passed away peacefully in his sleep, in time that he was still full of strength and after he finished his beautiful Christmas display.
It is so sad that the house of Jeannie lost his master.
With deepest sorrow
