Don’s renewed presence at Sea Breeze
Over the next several years, Don and Ann devoted more of their time to Don’s Original at Sea Breeze. Some of the loyal employees drifted to the Sea Breeze location, also, including Ann Cardile, Roger Varela and Terry Klee. Because of Don’s renewed presence at Sea Breeze, many patrons also returned to Don’s Original. In 1982, after a long and courageous battle with cancer, Don Barbato passed away, leaving Ann and his two sons to carry on his business at Sea Breeze.
