Don Carlton’s daughter, Rachel shared with us one of her favorite memories of her dad when she worked for the Kauffman Foundation. All associates were offered a complimentary ticket to opening day every year. That year, Rachel was the lucky winner of the “bring a guest” lottery. There was no question who she would bring to opening day – her dad! He fit right and held his own with all her colleagues. “I can’t recall if the Royals won or lost the game, but I do remember my dad and I having a great time, as evidenced by the smiles on both our faces.”
Thank you Rachel for sharing your special memory of your father! Bishop Spencer Place wouldn’t be the same without men like Don Carlton.
