There will be a missing spot in my heart and in our family. He was the sunshine in my sky and my hero growing up. Oh how I love my daddy

When I started working at Brede, Donnie found out I graduated from Edison High School, the same school he graduated from, we started going to a few Edison football games with Mark Grant. That was great fun. He also told everyone I was an Edison Homecoming Queen, of course he was joking around. I miss the jokes & stories he would tell.
I could pick out his smiling face in a crowd.
Donnie will be greatly missed.

Every Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or anytime I’m just over visiting he would tell me 2 stories that would make him and myself laugh every time. He would tell me about how when I was a baby and him and my oldest brother Billy were watching me and did not know how to change my poopy diaper so they just “made things up as they went” or the time I wouldn’t take a nap so he took me on a walk around the yard and I looked at his car and said “hey that’s a nice car.. we should go for a ride!” And then through his laugh he’d barley make out that I didn’t even make it to the end of the driveway before I was a asleep! He was a great man and I’m proud of my Marine corps grandfather for his service to this country and his dedication to being a great husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He will be loved and missed forever.
