    To the Bachrach family, please accept my condolences. I had the pleasure of working with Don while I was at Witco from 1983 to 1994. Though he was in New York, and I in Woodcliff Lake, we crossed paths often enough to have meaningful exchanges and always a good laugh. He was smart, very insightful and I'm happy to say I was fortunate to have known him. Your family will remain in my prayers.

    My condolences to the Bachrach family. Don and I had a wonderful business and personal relationship when I worked for Canamera Foods, a supplier to Witco. He was a unique and warm individual who will be missed by his friends in Canada.

    May these words from the Bible give you comfort during your time of grief. Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.

    I met Don when was he purchasing manager at Witco Chemical. As a founder of a young company the business we did at Witco was very significant to our success. It was a pleasure to business with Don. He had a high level of integrity and professionalism. I also developed a personal friendship with him that lasted for 40 years.

    To you, you ol' Cockamamie, I'll miss you but will cherish of having the good luck of knowing you,,,
