2 Condolences for Donald C. Tribit, Jr.

  • Dear Linda

    We were so surprised to read Don’s obit in the Wilmington paper. I was in touch with him at the Stamp Center last year. But we had not seen either you or Tammy (no longer a little girl)…for so many years. We feel so sorry for the hard times you faced…

    We wish you and family the best in the years to come as you go through a long healing.

    Last year we moved to a nice retirement community in Hockessin, after being retired from duPond for 20 years. Iris just retired for the second time from the Nemours Hospital.

  • So sorry to hear of Don’s passing. Haven’t seen Don for at least a year now. Bought things from him at the Black Angus Antique Mall in Adamstown, PA., first outside in back and then at his booth inside. Always a gentleman, knowledgeable and fair. May he rest in peace.
