HEY GUYS
I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL LAST NIGHT 11-27 -18 ABOUT 9;00 PM FROM ALICE WESTMORELAND THAT HER HUSBAND DON HAS JUST PASSED .HE WAS BATTLING LEUKEMIA FOR A TIME .
DON WAS 83 YEARS OLD ,HE LIVED IN DICKINSON TX. AND WAS THE OWNER OF LIMELIGHT RECORDING STUDIO ,MANY
PLAYERS SUCH AS HERB REMINGTON ,STEVE PALOUSEK ,ETC .
RECORDED THERE .
IN HIS YOUNGER YEARS HE WAS A TALENTED MUSICIAN AND SINGER WITH A VOICE SIMILAR TO HANK WILLIAMS .
I MEET DON AT A HIGH SCHOOL TALENT SHOW , PLAYING STEEL .
WE FORMED A BAND AND PLAYED TOGETHER FOR 46 YEARS .BUT
HIS LOVE FOR RECORDING , WAS FORCED TO QUIT PLAYING SO HE COULD DEVOTE HIS FULL TIME IN THE RECORDING BUSINESS.
HE WAS LIKE A BROTHER TO ME AND HE WILL BE MISSED BY
ALL.

This is sad news. Don was a great guy, fine musician and had a great studio which he recorded many great artist. He's not suffering any more, he is now with Our Precious Lord. Our prayers will go out to Don's family.
