Donnie always felt very blessed to have had so many people be a part of his life and help guide him and give advice. These people helped guide him and overall shape him into a good man. Donnie looked up to many who knew he struggled a lot with not knowing who his father was. He was grateful for every male figure who helped him along his journey in life. For that Donnie became a great father to our children.
He is preceded in death by great grandparents, Joe and Imogene Hornbeck; grandparents, Duane McWhorter, Wilbert “Buddy” and Linda Bean; uncles, Duane Sanders and David Forbes; and adopted Father Ronnie McMinn.
