Don Choura, 1/5/19 RIP

It is with deepest regret that I must inform you of the passing of DonC at the age of 77.

Because it was brought to my attention that Don hadn't posted in a while, I attempted to reach him by phone. After half a dozen tries, his wife, Carolyn, finally answered and gave me the terrible news. Don has been up and down in health for a while, but being such a private person, he quietly put his affairs in order without letting anyone know, myself included.

Carolyn is planning a memorial service in Portland, Oregon around July. If anyone wishes to send condolences, please PM me your emailing address and I will let you know where to send them.

This was the one and only time I met Don in person, he drove to Seattle to pick me up, give me a ride in the Cobra, and go visit mutual friend, Danny Bailey (Mike Hansen). It's one of the great moments in my life and I will cherish it forever. Rest well, Don, you've earned it.

Don was a really good guy. We exchanged many emails in the past about knives and his Cobra. RIP my friend I won’t forget you.

This is such sad news!!! I really liked Don a lot! My prayers are with his wife and family. Thank you Dave for giving us the news. Like Billy Joel said in his song, "Only the good die young!" :cry: :cry: :cry:

I spoke to Mike Hansen, George Cameron and Duke Charlesworth on the phone last night after hearing. I knew it was my duty to post this, but that it would be sad news for everyone Don had encountered in life. He was just that sort of man. I shall remember him fondly.

He contributed a lot to this forum and will be missed! At his age and driving a Cobra he was still young at heart and he is in a much better place now.

Very sad news. He must have had a good life. Collecting stilettos and driving/owning a Cobra. Hard to beat. Thanks Dave for the update.
