      For those who didn’t know him, Don and his brother were amongst the premier collectors of horse bells. They had an encyclopedic knowledge concerning manufacturers of sleigh bells. There presentations a the Annual convention were always educational. He will surely be missed.

      The Schroeder brothers knew sleigh bells like they knew the back of their hand! They wanted the unique styles, and the cream of the crop. Over many years Ralph and I, (aka “Bell Villa”) searched out fine specimens for them, and they were always pleased. I didn’t know Don as well as I knew his brother, but one thing I did know was that they were both very fine gentlemen! May Don rest in peace, and may his bell knowledge be a lasting legacy for us all.
