    Big Donnie was an incredibly sweet guy. Generous with an easy smile, he loved his family and got a genuine kick out of life.

    My dad was such a good man with such a big heart and a huge sense of humor. He was so much fun to grow up with and always kept us laughing. He always treated my friends like part of the family, being sure to include them on our fishing trips and vacations and like I said before, always kept us laughing. His love for children and animals was so heart warming. He had a lot of love to give and I am going to miss him every day for the rest of my life. I love you Dad. Rest in peace. 💕

    Don was a good man. I never saw him without a smile on his face. We had good times growing up in Hickory Knoll.
