I just today heard the sad news of Dons passing. I worked with Don off and on over the years starting back when ACME Steel opened. Don and I stayed in touch and always discussed Ohio State Football. He was a great man and will be missed by many. Jon Ekvall InfoSight Corporation Chillicothe, Ohio

Those Saturday night get together's at Buddy & Pals will not be the same without Don adding his own brand of humor to the mix. It has been a little emptier there the last few months without his presence at the gigs and at the plant. Personally I really do miss him. See you soon Don.

Bob Biggins left a message on January 13, 2011:
Missy and Seth, The taking of such a fine life at such a young age is a tragedy. But just know, right up until the last visit late December, he told me that all he was worried about was his family, not taking himself into consideration at all. That was the kind of human being Hummel was. And for that reason along with many others I am proud to have called him my Thiel Football, AXP - Crow and LaPorte, IN. buddy.

In the basement of Sawhill at our B+D when he as our pres. tried to get us to act out that Meatloaf song. #2 Beating Carnegie Mellon at Thiel in the mudd up to our knees! Lots of memories going through our heads right now. Way too amny to right about. Going to that pub by YSU with a bunch of people. I didn't know you too well in life after Thiel. I want you to know I think of those days more and more as the years pass. What a great bunch of people to grow up with. Tell Chico we miss him too. We will see you again some day!
