Donald Tillman was my uncle, he was always called Bobo by family and friends, except his wife who called him Donald. Uncle Bobo was a good man who lost 2 fingers on his right hand in a carpentry accident with a skill saw. At the emergency room one finger was still attached by a small piece of skin and the doctor told him, "it looks like we'll have to amputate", Uncle Bobo's reply was "well damn Doc, it's already cut off!" Even in that situation he still had a great sense of humor! He loved his family and friends and they loved him. He will be missed by all.
