He attended the public schools of Washington County and graduated with the Class of 1980.
Donnie was employed with the Citgo Quik Mart for more than 20 years, until his health began to decline. He was one to always lend a helping whenever needed and enjoyed making one laugh with something he would say or do. Donnie had a huge personality and loved people.
