Growing up everyone loved to be at Aunt Jenny and Uncle Donnies house. You never left that house hungry, either with his great cooking or a mouth full of candy. He taught me all about coupon clipping and what was on sale where..he knew the best deals!!! You were loved and will be truly missed by all!! -Kristi Dillery

Uncle Donnie was always there when anyone needed anything. During my mother’s challenging times in life he always had her back & welcomed us in his home no matter what day or time it was. Uncle Donnie drove me to school on those days & I can remember every detail of his routine each morning. I stayed at their home so many times, eating candy, wishing they would take me cleaning with them. I told him I thought he still owed me some money for cleaning . Lol God has called Uncle Donnie back to him, and being by his side & and able to be there for my Aunt Jenny was the best feeling for me the last couple days of his life. I Love you Uncle Donnie, may you fly free in heaven. Until we meet again, Tracy Nason .

Donnie was always so welcoming to whoever came through his door. The smells coming out of his kitchen was very inviting and he always insisted you eat something even if you weren’t hungry! Rick spent many hours with him in his garage working on various projects. A big man with a big heart! He worked so hard to provide for his family and loved them all so very much. You will be missed but never forgotten!
