Donovan Douglas Bulger, 21, of Belleville, Ill., born April 1, 1995, in St. Louis, Mo., passed away Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2016, at St. Louis University Hospital in St. Louis, Mo.
Donovan worked as a molder for Nascote Industries in Nashville, Ill. He was a member of the Quail Club in Millstadt, Ill.
Donovan was a beautiful person, inside and out, and loved nothing more than spending time with his friends and family. He mostly loved being an amazing uncle to his nieces and nephews. He was so full of life, loved to laugh and would bring joy to everyone who knew him. He always saw the good in people and wore his heart on his sleeve. He was never one to pass judgement on anybody and he was always willing to make new friends and spread his infectious laugh. His motto was, "Blood makes you related, loyalty makes you family". He was a wonderful son, an amazing brother, and a selfless friend. He was loved by so many and will forever be in our hearts and deeply missed. Donovan's wish to be an organ donor was fulfilled by saving eight or more lives, most specifically 25 years and under. He gave "The gift of life" so he will live on through others.
Donovan was preceded in death by his father, Terry L. Bulger.
Donovan is survived by his mother, Cheri Bulger Miramonti (Greg Slama); his sisters and brothers, Katie Leveling (Chris Seper), Savannah (Jake) Roesch, Brenden (Angie) Bulger, Jason Magrath and Mandy (Gene) Carpenter; his stepsisters, Emily and Jordan Slama; his stepfather, David "Porter" Leveling; his grandparents, Donald (Marilyn) Miramonti and Curt (Sharon) Miramonti; his uncles, Larry (Sheila) Bulger and Ken Miramonti; his nieces and nephews, Cameron and Carina Roesch, Sydney Bulger, Avery Seper and Roman Smith; his beloved friend and brother, Jake Roesch and his beloved friend Davey Allen.
