    Dad, gone too soon. I love you and you will be missed every single day. I know you have your wings and are soaring high. You were a legend here, and I know you will be up there too. A peice of my heart went with you. I’m so thankful I got your toughness, and your tenderness, and your love of thunderstorms, and most of all you. I’m thankful for every moment we had, and for the memories I have.

    Donnie, you are my longest and dearest friend. I will miss our nighttime phone calls. I miss you and you will be always in my heart. I know you will be playing guitar and not a harp in the angels choir. I loved you my best friend.

    Don – you were a good man and backed up the title of being a son, brother, father and friend and I will never forget the times we spent together. You were the rock of the family and you never backed down from anything and I will miss our conversations, jokes and the great times when we had a few beers together. May you Rest In Peace forever and we will meet again in the future. Thanks for being the brother in law you once were to me it meant a lot. God Bless.

    • Child Of Don on December 30, 2021 at 10:22 pm

      Dad, I miss you more than you know. I could ramble on and on, but you already know. Your real responses to anything I talked to you about, you always kept me grounded, real and humble.
      I will miss our sarcastic, ball busting responses to everything life threw our way. We always had a way to just laugh through the bullshit. I’ll meet up with you later, much later, if all goes well.
      You rest now and I know you will always look over us, especially your grand kids.

      P.S. I know….you are already looking at your obituary and trying to figure out how the mother of your 6 kids was not included. Don’t worry, we know how special she was to you as she is to us.

    You were truly one of the good ones- Your silly dilagaf manner will be missed! Condolences to the family. RIP Donnie

    Dad, You left me to soon I’m to young to be dad less its not fair. But I want you to know I will never stop GROWING and THRIVING in my life and making you proud I’ve beat a lot of odds and you never doubted me.. When I came to your job at 15 years old and said I was having a baby 1st thing came out your mouth was congrats, did you tell your mother the answer was NO I’m laughing now but I wasn’t back then cause I was so scared to tell her but don’t worry I never told her I told you 1st that’s our little secret, and then you said it wont be easy but I did it DAD & when Matthew graduates High school June 2022, I know you will be with me in spirit. I promise I will take care of mom she’s been holding it together for all of us, but I know it’s been just as hard for her. My kids will miss their papa you were always the best dad and even better papa. Oh lastly Alina will definitely miss her lunch dates with you.
    Dad I Love You & Miss You Always and Forever.
    ❤ Rosalie, Matthew, Jayden & Alina

    Skee there’s no filling your shoes at the right hand of the table. This cuts right through the heart of the club which you were such an inspiration in starting many years ago. It was just a month ago when you mentioned leaving and everyone just gasped. There was no way we were going to allow it and we still won’t. You are and always will be the backbone Skee. You will be in every prayer and every thought now and as long as the club is in existence. We Love You Brother and will Never forget the reason why we’re there, it’s because of you Skee. We Love You Brother ! Rest Now
