    The extraordinary thing about Donnie was that he was an extraordinarily nice guy!
  • Donnie, We Miss You

    I met Donnie in the 8th grade, and we were best friends for the rest of his short life. We - the whole F'in school - loved his drumming in "Little Drummer Boy" at Christmas time in the C R Band.

    It is such a damn shame he got sucked into that war - he believed in what he was doing - "fighting the commies", when I did not.

    "The only exceptional thing about Don Kenton is that he was an exceptionally nice guy".

    His Mom never got over it. She would cry just looking at my little boy when we stopped by to visit some 30,31 years later ... seeing Donnie at that age. Her precious son, gone forever.
  • Donald and Gary

    My brother, Gary Engebretson, was on that helicopter with Donald the day it went down. I wonder if Gary and he were friends. I wish they were both on this earth today. I know Gary went to Ft. Worth too

    I worked with Don at Mark's men store in Dover. Don's mother and my mom were friends My mom came home and told me "Donnie Kenton was killed in the war" I joined the Marine Corps later that summer and went to Viet Nam as a Marine rifleman was wounded in April 1969.
    I remember Donald Kenton with respect and love. America did loose her best young men in that war. I still think of Don and what else can I say. Semper Fi Don.
