Obituary of {subject.fullNameWithPrefixAndSuffix}

I, Donald Russel Downs died after a short illness stepping out of this life into a place of eternal joy that knows no pain, tears, or sadness awaiting my wife of 72 years, Eunice W. Downs. I am also survived by my children Mike, Camille, Donna, Alan, and Amy, 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.

I was born on May 28, 1926 in Shreveport to Horace and Omie Downs and was a life long resident of Shreveport. I was a professional civil engineer and worked at my profession in Shreveport for 60 years. (since 1961). I served my country in the military both in active duty and the national guard for 16 years with service in World War II in the European Theater of Operations.

My life consisted of some successes, some failures, but I consider my major success and accomplishment is that I did provide for my family, if not abundantly, at least comfortably.
