Donnie was halfway through training me at work and we got to share many laughs and opinions about life in the last few months. He was always ready to help and with a positive attitude. A funny guy that loved fried chicken and to make other people laugh. He was very proud of his daughter being accepted to college and let all of us at work know. You left us too soon friend, we will surely miss you and pray for God to strengthen your loved ones.

My sincere condolences to the McCradic family. I had the pleasure of meeting Donnie working for Texas Medicaid many years ago. He always had a smile on his face and a laugh to share with everyone. He also read his bible on his breaks and shared a good Word when needed. I enjoyed watching him and our coworkers play basketball; it was always a joy.
May the Lord comfort and strengthen you during this difficult time.

To the McCradic family, my prayers and condolences for our loss. I met Donnie in the 90s when we were both working at First USA Bank and we continued working together at Texas Medicaid. Outside of work, we also shared a love of playing basketball and we shared many games together over the years. Donnie has always been a character and I will always remember the many laughs we shared together.
