  • Rick and I extend our deepest sympathy on the death of Don. He was an extraordinary man; so kind, loving and giving. I am proud to be a part of this loving family. Don will be sorely missed by all who had the honor and privilege of knowing him. May God comfort all of his dear family and friends in their time of sorrow and may their precious memories of him and the resurrection of Jesus give them hope and shine light in this dark time. With our love, Mary and Rick Gulledge Mary and Richard Gulledge
  • My sympathy to Don's Family. I worked with Don from 1977 when I hired in at Great Lakes Steel until he retired. He was always good to work with and easy to get along with. He worked hard and smart and always had a positive attitude. He helped us keep the blast furnace operation running with his excellent mechanical work ethic. It was my pleasure and honor to work with Mr. Don Barbeau. Mike Lafferty
  • Don, and his wife, Louise, were two of the most beautiful people we have ever met. They were devout Christians, intelligent, personable, and funny. They spread Christ's love wherever they tread. We will never forget the famous First Baptist Church of Wyandotte "Possum Trip of 1986" (that by definition meant we travelled in close quarters) where we were chased up the East Coast to Maine by Hurricane Gloria, and spent a lot of quality time with them. Their precious souls are reunited in Heaven serving their Living Saviour. Our concern and prayers go out to their family. Scott&Cindy Kallgren
