    Sorry for your loss. He was a sweet man. I remember both he and Linda from Rivergate Calvary and Donnie coaching our softball team. I would visit them when they moved in off Stop Thirty. Such a sweet couple!. Prayers for the family

    Donnie was a great man to be around. He had such a great sense of humor, great conversations and a heck of a good poker player. I am thankful that I got to get a glimpse of a good man. I only had the pleasure of getting to know him for a year now, ever since he patronized my poker league at the Elks lodge.
    He will truly be missed at the poker tables and in life. I am so glad I got to celebrate his 80th birthday with him and the family.
    I am so sorry for your loss. The family is in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest condolences.

    To the Scott Family:

    So sorry to hear of Donnie’s passing. I have so many fond memories of Donnie since childhood. Enjoyed his visits with us when he was making trips to Winston-Salem. Always good to see him and reminiscence about “the old times”. He will be greatly missed but we pray that each of you will find peace and comfort in reflecting on all the wonderful memories with your loved one.
    The family is in our thoughts and prayers.
