The Carlinville High School Class of 1956 were sad to hear of Don's passing. He was a friendly guy and has attended most of our reunions and we missed him Sun at our 65th reunion only to learn that he passed away that day. Our sympathy to his wife and family.

Donald Bellm Family: I was so saddened to learn on Sunday the 12th of Don’s passing. He and I were friends from high school days, and were both in the freshman class in the ‘56-‘57 year at Blackburn. While we went our separate ways in careers, we stayed in touch on and off over the years, and especially after retirement. Don would regularly write and email to me about the U.S. space program, and I would regularly discuss economic matters (and politics) with him. I will sorely miss our correspondences. Don was a terrific human being. Louis J. Lanzerotti, New Vernon, New Jersey
