Teresa and Family...In this time of your sorrow I know there are no condolences that are sufficient particularly with Donnie's sudden fall and subsequent departure. Know that I love you and am thinking of you as you go through the anguish of your loss of this wonderful man in your lives. He was such a gentle and generous soul with a heart open to all. Love you...Uncle Gregg

I was so sad to hear about Donnie’s passing. He was a good man when he was still a kid. I remember eavesdropping while Aunt Joanna described him, his character, and his work ethic when he was still newly wed. So many loved and respected him. So many will miss him. God bless...

My Brother. My Dear Friend. He's a big part of the memories of my life. Always a "Rock" to me and so many. I always told him that when I grow up, I was going to be just like him. I love you Donnie and will miss you so much. ❤

Donnie was a great friend to me when we were teenagers growing up into early adulthood. Even then he was there with a kind word and an outstretched hand if anyone ever needed anything. He grew into a fine man and made his family and friends proud. Fly high Donnie, i can hear you little laugh as you reunite with your loved ones.

Donnie was my brother in law but I remember him as a kid too. He was always happy and smiling. He was a pillar in this family without acting like it. His nonjudgemental ways and upright life commanded respect from the family and community and everyone that knew him. My heart hurts for the family that grieves him.

One of my favorite uncle who often times would act as a dad too. He helped all who were in need. Uncle Donnie, you we're truly an amazing man the perfect role model. I wouldn't be the same without you!!!
