Yesterday was the anniversary of Don Temple’s birthday.
As you may know, Don passed away a little over seven years ago.
But he was such an incredible man and pioneer in our industry,
I wanted to send out this email in his memory.
Don was my original partner and mentor in the self storage industry.
We first met through the local Rotary Club
and formed our company together in the mid 1980’s.
Don built one of the very first self storage facilities in California and was the first person in the country to build a multi-story self storage facility (that was not a conversion from something else.)
He was also a very generous man who was well known for
his gifts to local hospitals, charities and individuals whose lives were greatly impacted by his friendship and generosity.
Fittingly, Don was inducted into the Self Storage Association
Hall of Fame in 2009.
Whether or not you knew Don, I hope you can appreciate his effect
on our industry and the world at large.
He was a good man and an inspiration and mentor to many.
With Best Regards,
Bancap Self Storage Group
