Don N. "Donnie" Kemp

April 26, 1993March 12, 2020

Don Nicholas Kemp, 26, of Homosassa passed away on Thursday, March 12, 2020. A native of Crystal River, Florida, he was born April 26, 1993 to Don W. and Laurie Ann (Glancey) Kemp, one of four children. Donnie, as he was known to many, was a member of the Lecanto High School Class of 2012 and had worked as an assistant at Bay Area Air Conditioning in Crystal River. He most recently was a driver for FedEx through Box Trotter, Inc. and was a member of Grace Bible Church in Homosassa. Donnie loved to spend time with his daughter and play sports with his friends. Donnie’s perfect day would start by prepping his daughter for the day and then heading out to breakfast with loved ones. After, the family would head out for an activity, probably a few hours at the park and then some fishing. They would then have dinner with his sisters and nieces, playing games and exchanging laughter. This would be followed by an ice cream date with his girlfriend, Jen, and their daughter. Before bed he would close out the day with a round of Madden with his friends or youngest sister. Mr. Kemp is survived by parents, Don and Laurie Kemp of Homosassa; grandfather William H. Kemp of Homosassa, FL; girlfriend Jennifer L. Lucas of Hernando, FL; daughter Paisley Ann Kemp, also of Hernando; siblings Lindsey Lee Brooks (husband Leon) of Inverness, FL; Heather Nicole Kemp of Rockville, MD and Cassandra Paige Kemp of Homosassa, FL; nieces Joselyn Sky Kemp and Janihya Arianna Brooks, both of Inverness, FL and many aunts, uncles and cousins. A memorial service of remembrance will be held on Sat., March 21, 2020 at 11:00 AM at Grace Bible Church in Homosassa. Friends will be received from 10:00 AM until time of service.

VBS at Grace Bible, Trunk or Treat, Fall Festivals.... Donnie; your cheeky smile will never be far from my ❤️. As I recall the times you, Jared, Matt, Rease, and Chris hung out together... I smile. You all had each other’s backs; always. It was always a good time watching you all play basketball at church. You were living the greatest role God ever can deliver...Fatherhood! Your sweet lil girl ; may she carry you in her heart forever. May that Kemp laughter shine down from Heaven; and cascade upon your sweet family, as a reminder that you were loved much and you’re in the Arms of your One and Only.. Jesus Christ🙏🏻

My best memories of Donnie were playing with my son Justin and their trucks. Always excited to share what they had new. Those two boys were so good together and loved each other. Easter egg hunts, Trick or Treating and Thanksgiving days spent with good friends and lots of fun.
Donnie you were taken from everyone too soon. I hope all your wonderful memories comfort each and every one of your family and friends, you will be truly missed!
