Barbara Fahey | Brigantine, NJ
I met Hat as a 26 year lad (as he always called me). He was a mentor whom I respected and tried to emulate.
Those who knew Hat would understand the following story - he and I were calling on a client and it started raining. He looked at me and said, "I hold you responsible for the rain. You should have checked the weather". I'll miss his sardonic disposition.
I am honored to say he was my friend. "

"Bless you, Don, and deepest sympathies to Marilyn and your family. We had the pleasure of meeting Don only a few times in Pennsylvania but truly enjoyed his wealth of knowledge, resounding humor, quick one-liners, and obvious love of Marilyn. You certainly enriched our lives.
And, too bad Antarctica. It was your loss that Don didn't have time to visit. "

"Marilyn and family. Our thoughts and prayers for
all of you. My contact with "Hat" began in 1988 when
I came to Systematics. The things I always admired most about him were his great sense of humor and the fact that he always gave me straight answers on business issues. He was a highly valued member of the Systmatics management and family and will be greatly missed by all. God Bless. "

Margeaux Martin | Centennial , CO
"Don was a special "good guy" among the many good guys and gals at Systematics. We worked closely together for a number of years and I knew him to be an excellent business executive with impeccable integrity. In fact he epitomized those combined characteristics better than anyone I have ever known. I am privileged to have worked with him and to have had him as a friend. Marilyn, my sincere condolences to you and all of Don's family. I know that you will miss him yet treasure his memory. "

Thank you Don for making my life better.
David Allen | London
"To everyone, but especially Marilyn and Talented Pianist Sister Vicky: We were friends at Tech more than fifty years ago. We have a fine memory of Don in a Russellville apartment after his military duty, hand-drawing spreadsheets and envisioning computerized flow charts. He drove a Porsche when he visited while we lived in Washington, and then we frequently saw each other when he lived here in Florida. And Arkansas, too, but not as much as we now wish. We didn't know he was sick and shall surely miss him. He did a lot of good for the world. "
Doris& Roy Weatherford | Tampa, FL
"A truer friend I will never find."
Joe McDoniel | Howell, MI
"Sending so much love to Marilyn and family. I had only known Don for a short time but during that time not only did he make me laugh, he shared some great stories, and always made me feel so welcomed. I will never forget our trip to Little Rock and will remember him every time I introduce Faye as "Esma.""
Katie Martin | Greeley, CO
"Marilyn, Andy, Ellaina, Blair, and family, thank you for sharing "Uncle Duck" with us. He made our world a better place and will be greatly missed. A better mentor to "Dr.Duck" could not have been found had we searched the world over. Sending our love...
Anita Roberds | North Little Rock, AR
"Gramps, you were an amazing grandfather, and one I was truly blessed to know in my life. You went above and beyond to make sure we all were set for life and understood it's meaning and how to be successful. You never failed to have faith in us even when we were stuck and felt there was no way out. I will continue to think of you daily. I love you, thank you for everything."
Blair Hatfield | Conway, AR
"To the most honorable, decent, generous, caring, and loving man I've had the pleasure of knowing and calling brother. Rest in Peace Don. You are forever loved and will always be a part of the crazy Weiser clan. And to you my beautiful sister Marilyn, I love you."
Faye Weiser Martin | Centennial , CO
"You don't meet many people like Don; brilliant, loyal, honest, funny, indefatigable and a list of other positive adjectives too numerous to list here. I learned so much from him at Systematics about information technology, caring for customers and good management. For all of you that knew him, you know what I mean. We need more people like him, particularly now. My condolences to the family. This is a great loss to all of us."
Paul Stanfield | Austin, TX
"Reflecting back upon my 30+ years of Hat....as a business colleague, friend, philanthropist, volunteer, Arkansas ambassador and occasional golfing partner.....we'll all miss a very special man who was wise, humorous, kind to others, and could bring levity in the face of crisis when it was needed most. Thanks to Marilyn whose partnership made him even better and VERY happy. Barbara and I send our deepest love to her and the family."
Steve Bova | Little Rock, AR
"Don was a wonderful and kind human being, and I treasured my time working with him at Systematics. I saw him as a mentor and friend who helped a California boy feel right at home in Arkansas. I loved his laugh and his sense of humor. While I haven't 11seen Don in decades, I am so pleased to honor his life, character and integrity.
