  • Donnie and I were friends in high school..we shared woodshop together. he had a way about him to make you laugh and had a serious side to him also. we made cool stuff in shop class somethings were not approved but we made them anyways. as the years went by we kinda lost touch..but a few years back I went to his house and throwed a few beer back and talked about old time and the friends we had. he was a great guy to know and will be missed by everyone he touched in life. RIP Donnie..prayers to the family..

  • Brooke & Crystal, we just wanted to tell you we are so sorry to hear about your Dad. We all had good times back in the day, playing pool, cards, parties & just visiting friends. We watched you all grow up. Donny was a character, he made everyone fill welcome when they came to visit, although he didn’t care to tell ya if he didn’t like something. He was a good guy. Memories of good & bad but he was a good friend. Overtime things happen & we didn’t see each other much. He always said stop by if your out. Last time I saw him he gave me a hug, that he hadn’t changed. He’ll be missed by many. If you need anything give us a holler. We love you, Teresa & Leonard
