Donnie was a lot of things and when you talk to his friends and people that new him you would hear them say things like Done was loving, caring, loud and obnoxious. He was also very giving to others, a man of his word, and built on a handshake. He loved his kids, his Harley Davidson and he loved to ride. Those are just a few of the attributes that describe Donnie. Anybody that knew Don knew his kids were his priority. He was also a jack of all trades and could do anything he put his mind to. He was the property manager of Silver Sands apartments in Sebring Florida where he lived. Donnie was very hard working and had to work hard for a lot of what he had. He was so funny and so good hearted.
Donnie always put others first and himself last as he was very loving, thoughtful, and caring. He was a Christian man and was often heard praying out loud or found praying with others. Donnie will be greatly missed by so many for his loving demeanor and for all the incredible memories he has left us with. He died doing what he loved, on the back of his Harley on the most beautiful country road.
