Don Saville passed away in May of 2017 at age 81. He was a Korean War veteran and served as a Corpsman HM1 in the United States Navy on the medical ship USS Piedmont. He was loyal to family, friends and country. Don was a good cook with a fun spirit who gave everyone a nickname and loved to tease and poke fun. He had a special place in his heart for his grandsons. And his Baked Beans recipe is a keeper!
