I knew Donnie for about 11 years. We became very close nickname being "Boot". He was very protective of me. You will be sadly missed until we meet again in Heaven, Donnie! With love,
Phyllis (Boot) Boyd

I lived in the same apartment building as Don for a few years and he always looked out for me and was so nice. I was sad to hear of his passing! Prayers to his family. Jamie Carlson
