Royale Garden Mourns the Loss of Fellow Musician, Dick Doner
It is with great sadness that this report from Lew Shaw was received recently: “Don Richard “Dick” Doner, 82, from lymphoma on July 4 in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. He played the trombone in high school and worked the piano bars as a pianist and singer in his native Toledo, Ohio. Following service in the Navy, he decided to settle in California where he worked for a company that specialized in computerized drafting, eventually becoming the company’s president and owner. He played with the GoodTime, Milneburg and Workingman bands, but is best known for the 37 years he spent with Chet Jaeger’s Nightblooming Jazzmen as their trombonist, vocalist and occasional pianist.”
Royale Garden joins his many friends in mourning the loss of this great musician and all-around great guy.
