Over three decades ago, Don represented me during several years of nasty divorce and child custody proceedings. Amidst all the stress and anguish of that terrible time, Don was the soul of calm and sensibility, and I so appreciated his level-headed guidance. I was grateful too, for his sly sense of humor which helped to take the edge off some of the unpleasantness. May he rest in everlasting peace.

grateful for the gift of Mr Don in our lives, sorry for the loss of his earthly body but grateful for the gift of salvation, He has reached his goal and he did it well, our committment to know, love and serve God and be happy with him in Heaven was definitely evident in his life!

It was always a good day when I saw Don Kneipp's name on my docket. It might be a long, arduous day, but it was a good day! He was always prepared, and so very knowledgeable. He had a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed.

My sincere condolences to Don's family. Don and I were classmates at LSU Law. As practitioners in the Fourth Judicial District, we were sometimes aligned in our positions and sometimes had opposing positions. Regardless of which it was, I respected what Don had to say and when we were on opposite sides of an issue, I knew that I would have to bring my "A" game. In later years, we enjoyed locker room conversations before and after work outs at the gym. I always enjoyed those talks. The legal profession is a better because Don was a part of it. Rest in peace, brother Don; and at the last day, Rise with Christ in His Glory!

TO: The family of Donald L. Kneipp FROM: Judge Robert C. Johnson and Family DATE: June 11, 2021 As a Judge on the Fourth District Court, I had the privilege, pleasure and honor of working with “Don” over the years and was deeply, deeply saddened by the news of his passing. I considered “Don” a friend and consummate professional. Every time I presided over a case that “Don” was involved in, it was a pleasure and a joy. I always knew that “Don” would be prepared, he knew his case, the issues involved and was a fierce advocate for the interest and rights of his clients. His clients knew that, I knew that, his opponents knew that and so did other members of the bar. “Don” took his job and his life as a professional to heart. Each client that he represented appeared to me, as if they were his only client, and he represented them as if they each had paid him a million dollars. He was truly a “lawyer warrior” who did his job so well, that the living, the dead or the unborn could not do it any better. He leaves behind some big shoes to fill as he has now boarded a flight to heaven, where he will now represent angels in the Supreme Court of Heaven. He will be missed but never forgotten. His legacy of hard work, scholarship, passion and supreme devotion to family, friends, clients, and profession will transcend the sands of time. It is with these thoughts in mind that I offer my sincere, profound, and deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. May the grace of God and sweet communion of the holy spirt comfort, strengthen, embrace, and keep you during this time of bereavement. Sincerely, Judge Robert C. Johnson and Family

When I was a 20-year-old college student, Don gave me the job I still call my favorite I ever had. Don was an amazing man-successful, but humble, accomplished, but generous, fervent, but kind. Some of my happiest memories come from working in his office. Don, Donna, Suzie, Aunt Sharon, Crystal, Chet, and Becky made for a great working environment. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing, but know that a greater world awaits him. You are in my deepest prayers, Kneipp family.
