Donald was a loving father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and cousin. He always kept a smile and cracked jokes. He was a light in the darkness. Always willing to help the next person. He loved fishing, listening to music, laughing, talking, and always trying to give advice on life. He loved everybody and was loved by all.
