The shining light of Charles “Donnie” Nixon, Jr. was extinguished on Friday, August 28, 2020. He was born on December 7, 1966 to Charles and Patricia Nixon in Nashville, Tennessee. Donnie is preceded in death by his father and survived by his mother, Patricia. Donnie was a military man, who was very proud of his service to his country with the U.S. Navy. Donnie is survived by his wife, Penny Crabtree Nixon; his son, Jarred; step-daughters, Brittany, Ashley and Morgan; his sister, Yvonne Nixon Kemp; his brother, Timmy Nixon; and many nieces, nephews, and step-grandchildren. Donnie was known by everyone that knew him as a loyal and devoted family man and friend. He was a lover of the beach and boating. He was an honest and reserved man with a fiery spirit. His mother knew him as Donnie, his step-grandchildren knew him as “Pop-Pop” but everyone that knew him at all, loved him. His light is one that will burn brightly, wherever it goes.

A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held at Mt. Olivet Funeral Home from noon until two o’clock on Monday, September 7, 2020 with a graveside service immediately following at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

Donnie and I were stationed in VFA-83 together and you could always bank on him having a smile every time you saw him. We stayed in touch through the years on social media and planned once to ride together and it just never worked out. Rest easy my friend you will be missed my many.

Donnie and I were thick and thin while stationed at Cecil Field, VFA-83. We stayed in touch from time to time over the years through occasional phone calls and social media. Donnie was a great guy, full of life and meant a lot to many people. You will be missed my friend, may you rest in pease! Prayers for his family and my deepest condolences. Randy

I served in VFA-83 with Donnie during the Gulf War. Great guy! He was always good for a laugh. Never held back what he thought. Unfortunately, those many years ago was the last I saw of him. Like so many others, contact was lost, but memories remain. He will be missed.
