Mr. Donald L. Pineiro, Dr. Squirrel (Evil and Smeeely), a man that wanted to dominate the world through his SWO (Squirell World Order) - and in every way possible, did just that through his smile, his humour and more than anything else his love for all that came into contact with him. At the end of September 2012 he left our world doing what he loved the most. A free spirit on the open road, travelling on his much loved motorbike in the Yosemite National Park (US).
Don't forget to like us on FACEBOOK, thanks so much!
I first wrote this a few years ago, then we lost it in our server crash... but now. Well, still thinking of you mate.
A man for all seasons. That can more or less sum up the life of Donald L. Pineiro. Whilst I did not know Don for all of my life, I am sure everyone who is reading this will agree, when one did come into contact with him, after a very short period of time you would feel that Don was indeed a life long friend.
A true gentleman who's love and zest for life, family and friends knew no boundaries. He was one of those rare natural people who tried to see the good in everyone he met - and I am sure Mr. Peneiro is now chatting up all those lovely Angels. And to everyone he met he would put a smile on their face, a genuine smile without malice or contempt.
I first met Don some three years ago through PlayerScripts and MWAP. He was always helping people out on the forums and in a very short period of time it was my pleasure to ask him to join our team. He loved playing Mafia Wars, but like many of us, he enjoyed the social interaction and being able to help others more than the game itself.
I like to think we became close friends and without doubt, Don was instrumental in making RX6 MWAP what it is today. MWAP was never just about the code, it was about all the team and everyone played a part. Don was not a coder, but he loved to learn and without doubt he loved his technology gadgets. In the coming years he eventually set up his own server, aptly named the "Squirrel Command Centre" and loved running mafia wars test accounts for many of our people which played an extremely important part of developing our code.
Through Thick and Thin
No matter what, through thick and thin he was there to support all of us. Brother in arms, but it was not all about this silly game we played. Don became a personal friend to everyone on the team. To me, he became a life long friend and many of our conversions were discussed around family and friends. And without doubt, his main passion in life was one thing. His son. I don't think there was a conversation we had that did not end up with us talking about our children, what they were up to, the frustrations of not being with them all the time. We shared some great stories, personal stories that will be with me all of my life.
He never pushed on giving advice, telling you what to do. But his natuaral charm and empathy would always win the day, and his natural ability to see from an outsiders point of view was very unique in many ways. There was not an once of malice in those Evil Smeeeely bones.
And of course, the things I will remember most, Dr. Squirrel - the (not so) Evil persona he invented. Oh man! What a giggle we all had, what a wonderful time over the years he played his character so well giving so much joy and laughter to everyone.
He was always up for a good laugh, even if the joke was on him. He loved every minute - in April of 2011 and because of the evil smeely ways of Dr. Squirrel, we came up with a weekend event that was so much fun we later turned it into a full on mafia wars mock war and all for charity.
"The Super Villain called "Dr. Squirrel" has gone back into the forest... thanks to the support of the Playerscripts fans! It was a fun event, even from a spectators viewpoint, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Dr. Squirrel received tons of attacks and took quite a thrashing the whole weekend. He confessed that he had so much fun that he played Mafia Wars about twice as much as usual, and spent a bunch of his hard earned RPs on Stam/Health refills in order to remain an active target/opponent for anyone who came knocking at his tree."
And that was what Don was all about. Giving back, having fun and helping people in the only way he knew how.
Many of us all had "last conversations" with Don before he went off on his travels to the Yosemite National Park - another great quality of Don, no matter how many friends he had, he treated everyone differently and always had time to talk. How the heck he kept up with everyone only he can tell. But I bet his SWO army played their part. (giggle).
Don's Last Journey (Thanks to my dear friends Scot for the text and Pat for the Photo)
Many people have now seen the last photo from Don Squirrel's FB page, have wondered where it is and speculated that it was Yosemite National Park in California, USA. It is.
In fact, the very road that his picture was taken from is one of the most majestic roads in the entire world, and is highly sought-after from travelers around the world. People refer to Yosemite as "God's Country", and I think they are right. There simply is no accurate way to describe the majesty and shear beauty of the entire wilderness area.
The road leading in is itself awe-inspiring and has caused me to stop and contemplate many times. To know that in Don's last few days he was able to experience Yosemite on a motorcycle leads me to believe his ascension to higher worlds has a nice path laid-down for him.
Just follow the pics Don.
I have linked below to snapshots from Google Earth that show the location from the pictures. But to really get a sense of the area and the beauty which he experienced before departing, punch in the coordinates to Google Earth yourself and take a tour.

To Don, a personal tribute...
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
McLaren (aka KC) has been involved in coding Mafia Wars scripts since 2009, even when Zynga tried to stop him he would not give up. OCD Scripting RX6MWAP. If it's fixed, he'll bork it in some way or another.

Other than that, he works as an IT Consultant in Security, Web Design, Development, walks the rat dog 6 times a day and lives in Croatia with his beautiful wife.
