A very fine man departed unexpectedly October 1, 2018 from a sudden illness.
Don was born in Ventura County, California and raised in North Hollywood by his
beloved parents, William and Edna Ree, who have preceded him in death. Don

father’s footsteps working for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
He retired on August 1, 2006 after 40 years of service. He made many lifelong
friends during his employment. On May 25, 2002, Don married the love of his life
Linda (Doty) Ree. Their life together became one adventure after another.
Everyone loved Don. He was well respected, generous, warm hearted, always
there with helping hands and open arms for the best hugs! Don is survived by his
wife, Linda. Sister, Sue Giacinto. In-laws, John Doty, Stef Barnet and Cheryl
Aggers. Nephews and Nieces, William Giacinto, Landon Aggers, Justin and Brittany

Your sense of humor, your hugs…
Your way of making things better
Mostly, I miss you.”
