Donnie loved his family dearly and cherished his friends. He would do anything for them. He was the kind of person who never met a stranger and was a friend to everyone he met. Donnie loved the Lord and was strong in his faith. He was a momma’s boy and proud of it.
Donnie had a mechanical mind and was a handyman extraordinaire. He was a welder for 13 years and a 10-year oilfield rope manufacturer. Donnie loved his work as a motorsport mechanic. In his spare time, he loved spending time outdoors hunting and fishing. He was also an animal lover, and was especially fond of his dogs, Lacie Mae, and Sampson. Donnie’s dream was to live in Caldwell, Texas on his property that he built from scratch. He loved his Beaver Creek community, Gregg and Maura Dever, Don and Josie Felder, Curtis and Veronica Desalous. He also loved his friends Pat and Karen Neuman, along with his Alief friends. Donnie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
A memorial mass will be held for Donnie at 10:00 am, on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at St. Helen’s Catholic Church, in Pearland, Texas, with Father Jim Courville officiating.
