Donnie was one of 12 children, he was affectionately known as “Donnie” to his family and friends with whom he enjoyed being with. After high school, Donnie served his country honorably in the US Army. When Donnie chose to turn his life around, he gave his life to God and was an ordained minister. One of Donnie’s favorite things to do was to reach out to his fellow man and help them turn their lives around too. Donnie had the ability to do great imitations of people and would have people rolling on the floor at family functions. He will mostly be remembered for his bow legs and his love for old Andy Griffith episodes. Donnie enjoyed sports, good gospel music and cooking, which he was very good at.
