I met Don and Phyllis in 1982 when they hosted the meeting of the International Correspondence of Corkscrews Addicts (ICCA) in Pennsylvania. They were very gracious hosts and had a wonderful several days plans for the members. I enjoyed seeing them at future meetings in North America and Europe.Don was join the ICCA in 1977 as the 40 member. A Morway tradition was to present flowers (usually roses) to ladies at the ICCA gala dinner. Whether the meeting was in North America or Europe, Don could always find a shop to purchase flowers. Don also presented flowers to the ladies at non-ICCA events! Don had not been an active member in recent years, but was missed by all. We all have great memories of time spent with Don & Phyllis. Don claimed there were always seventeen drops of wine left in the bottle after it was poured. He proved it time and time again. In the attached photo with Phyllis, Don is ready to pour seventeen drops. Two of Don’s hobbies (in addition to corkscrews) were caring for vintage cars and woodworking. Don crafted a wine tote which he described as “Lift your spirits with this distinctive wood Wine Tote exclusively designed and handcrafted by the Noble Cork Inc.” (See photos).

I Met Don and Phyllis in 1972 when we lived opposite them in Pineville. Don was a very interesting man, he trained the First astronauts at Johnsville Naval Air Station where he worked, his photos and stories were amazing. He also was a great wine connoisseur and because of this he became a collector of cork screws. He belonged to the very elite club of cork screw collectors, and went to events they held all over the country and some abroad. Don even hosted an event in PA ,which took a terrific amount of time to organize. He flew light airplanes, loved cars and entered them into many car shows, meticulously cleaning the engines so they looked brand new. He and Phyllis had a wonderful life together, they travelled to England and stayed and visited my family over there and whenever my mother visited here they were so kind and always took her out for the day. Because he so enjoyed visiting the pubs in England, upon his return he built a wonderful pub in his basement, which we all enjoyed very much fun! They are sadly missed but I know they are now together, playing with their beloved dogs and drinking fine wines.

My condolences to his family. I had the good fortune to meet Don and his beloved Phyllis many years ago through my wife’s family. We got to spend a few Christmas Eve’s together. My sons got to hear some of Don’s amazing stories about his time with NASA and the astronaut program. He regaled us of their trips around the world collecting the amazing corkscrews that he had. He and Phyllis were amazing people. They will be sorely missed.
