A graduate of Lee Academy and Delta State University, Donny was an avid outdoorsman and accomplished athlete. From dove and deer hunting, to outdoor grilling, to celebrating all-things Ole Miss, his favorite moments were spent in the midst of his family and friends. A man of honesty and character, Donny will be forever remembered as a loving family man and a true friend.

The family wishes to express their gratitude for the excellent care Donny received from the Baptist Memorial Cancer Center in Oxford, Sta-Home Hospice and to each of his very special nurses. For the all of the prayers and expressions of support from friends and members of our community during the past year, we will be forever grateful.
