Although Donald had little formal education he was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family. He was a proud family man not ever to waiver on his commitment to give his family the very best right up till the end. He loved everyone and had a great love and bond with his grandsons Justin Roach and Matthew Ellis. Donald was selfless with his time, always making an effort to create memories with his family. Donald would drive in a blizzard to pick his grandchildren up for the holidays and drive cross country to take another to meet a new love. Family Sunday Supers were always his favorite; he carried this tradition on from his mother Jenny. He loved to sponsor off shore fishing trips, amusement park adventures and of course, the Delaware County Fair.
