    Uncle Donny always lit up a room with his smile, his funny stories, and his chuckles.

    Don Cull was one of the best friends a man could ever ask for.   I was very fortunate to work with him on the Police Department and as a bonus, I was trained by him.  He taught me so much about Police work and also about Family.   His sense of humor was the best but his loyalty to his Family and Friends were the best. 
    I am going to miss you Mr Marine.  God Bless You Donald Eugene

    Don was one of the finest men I have ever met.  I rode with him daily as we attended the Chicago Police Academy and learned how smart and great he was.  Our friendship continued during my time with the Chgo. Hts. Police Dept. and on occasional meetings thereafter.  He was always smiling and happy when we talked.  I haven't seen Don in a long time but I'll always remember him and treasure our friendship.
