Donnie Loved his family more than life itself. He enjoyed taking rides with his dog Tuxie. He was happiest outdoors, especially hunting, fishing and camping. Some of the best years of his life were coaching and watching his children play sports. He was proud to be a working man and Jack of All Trades. He always fixed everything the family broke. GO JACKETS!
