Donnie loved going to the outer banks and hanging out with his Sea Kove family (Nancy, Boom, Skip, Sue, Cathy, Tommy, Chris Julie, Caroline and many more), weekends at Lake Gaston and taking his boat out on the water. Donnie had an infectious laugh and always found the good in any bad situation and loved to tell funny jokes even if they only made sense to him. Donnie loved taking care of the grandkids when they were home sick from school, needed a ride to work or school activity, and loved to tease the kids about eating their Halloween candy. Donnie always put others first and will be remembered by many as the kindest man.
