Donny was a passionate soul who found joy in the roar of dirt bikes, the power of muscle cars, and the artistry of mechanics. Don’s hands were skilled, and his heart was adventurous. He leaves behind a legacy of enthusiasm, expertise, and a love for life that touched everyone around him. May he rest in peace, forever remembered in the echoes of revving engines, loud AC/DC music, and the shared stories of his vibrant journey.
Donny will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. He touched the lives of so many people across multiple generations. During his life, he would help anyone however he could. The lives that Donny touched were like a pebble being tossed into a lake acting as ripples that extend far beyond just us.
There will be a Celebration of Life (potluck) on Dec 9th 2023, 3pm, at his shop.
