As we mourn the loss of this remarkable individual, we also celebrate his life and achievements. We extend our deepest condolences to Don’s family, friends, and colleagues. His spirit will forever be a part of Datacolor, and his legacy will continue to inspire us to reach new heights in color science technology.

Let us all take a moment to reflect on Don’s invaluable contributions and remember him as the visionary who played a crucial role in shaping the future of color science.
