Joseph Craig McDonald passed away on February 26th, 2014 after a long battle with mental illness and addiction.
Joe McDonald was born on August 26th, 1958 to Gertrude Blum Galloway McDonald & Al McDonald. Joe's early years were not easy ones & as a pre-teen and teenager he slipped into a world of drugs never to return. The damage drug addiction did to his body & mind made him unrecognizable in both behavior & appearance to his friends and family.
His beloved Mother Gertrude McDonald & his favorite Aunt Joan Page preceded him in death.
If a loved one is suffering from drug addiction or mental illness please intervene early & often before they descend into the abyss of mental illness and lifelong rejection.
