Donald “Don” Aikens loving son of Samuel and Dorothy (nee: Lefferts) Aikens passed away suddenly at home on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at the age of 80.  He left behind his beloved wife of 53 years Rachel (nee DiMaio) Aikens, his son Walter R. Aikens, his daughter Lori Ann Aikens, and her fiancé Jeremy.  He also left behind 3 grandchildren Amber, Brandon, and Austin.  Don was self-employed for 50 years at Don’s Seat Covers in Bristol, PA.  Don also loved going to Annapolis, MD so much so that he and Rachel had eloped on May 8, 1970, and went there for many anniversaries thereafter.  He had a passion for photography.  He was a freelance photographer for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Bristol Pilot.  One of his most memorable moments was “shooting” for the Miss. America Pageant in Atlantic City.  Don was a familiar face all around Bristol.  He will be deeply missed by his family.
