"Donnie was part of our family for 40 years. We did have some great times!! Donnie loved to laugh? He was Michael's HERO when Michael was young & loved anything Fire Station? Donnie was also one of the best drivers you ever met. He could drive anything and sometimes those road trips were rather eventful; especially if we all climbed in the van and went "junkin"? Pam & Anne, I know the last 5 years have been hard for your Dad in so many ways... and WE ARE SO PROUD of you two for the care, patience and love you gave him; he was a very Proud Father of His Girls?
