May my friend Donoo Rest in Peace! We grew up together in Norco on Apple St; childhood playmates; SCB High School Sports teammates ; Spillway Bar softball championships ; decades long Lakeshore Duck Club Blind partners and the list goes on and on. We shared a lifelong friendship and a good life. Rest in peace my friend-you will be sadly missed. Randall

Sorry for your loss. I lived down Wesco Road growing up. My maiden name is Murray. My dad was Jerry Murray. He was a delightful bus driver!

Mrs. Janet, Scot, Troy, Dana and Paula
We were so saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Donoo. As a child I spent many summer days hanging around at your house in Norco. So many memories pop to mind when I think of him: his dogs, his garden, the bridge that crossed the canal that I was scared to cross, the swing in the yard and the fact that he was the only person that called me Deborah :)
As an adult I received many vegetables that he shared and we would talk after Mass-when we could make that early Sunday Mass.
Please know that all of you will be in our thoughts and we are praying for You.

Rest In Peace Mr. Donoo
