Donnie C. has passed away

  1. He was the one person that went to the lengths of the earth to get the hunt of a lifetime apparatus from that scumbag Johnny Allen a few years back. He made countless visits to try and get it for the LOVE of the kids. Truly a great man. Quiet and God loving to the core.

    Oh my gosh im so stunned!!! :'( I so enjoyed reading Donnie's post and looked up to him for his openness and moral family values. Donnie you will be missed. Hopefully his family will get to read all the kind things that are being said and know we will miss him too. I urge everyone to keep his family in there prayers, Stop and think of yourself in this place and hug you family, call your friends and even find a kind word to say about those that may drive you nuts. With a sad heart I wish you farewell Donnie, while we all argue here sometimes we are a lot like family.
    If anyone wants to take up a collection pm me I will be happy to chip in.

    Will

    Totally shocked to learn this. Donnie will be missed and I agree Dux....although we all get after it we are a family. I pray for his family and friends as we have lost a good friend. May God bless those close to him and let us all be mindful that we are promised nothing in this life short of leaving it. With a heavy heart I wish all of you a Merry Christmas. Tim

    Oh my....so sad...so sorry to hear this. Donnie was a man among men. I got to spend time with Donnie when I taught a class at Micheal's a couple of years ago. We spent a couple nights together at Micheal's and really got to know each other. He was a very good man. This is so tragic. Donnie was always one of the first in line to help someone. Hardly a benefit ever came along that Donnie didn't make himself a part of. So kind and thoughtful of a man he was. Truly he will be missed by many, and as someone else said, we've lost a member of our family.

    Prayers for his wife and family.

    God Speed Friend.

    Lost for words. I spent several days with Donnie in Oklahoma and we spent hours talking every day. Donnie would come over by me and pull up a chair and neither one of would move all day long. Any time I needed anything in Texas he was always one of the first people to help out. At one time we had some horrible problems with a taxidermist in Texas concerning HOAL. Donnie would drive down there on his own and multiple times trying to catch the guy at home to get our kids trophies back. Every time you talked to him, it was always about just doing what was right and moral. Donnie would never ask anyone for anything and would always be one of the first to jump up and volunteer to lend a hand. Although it is a great loss to his family and our taxidermy family, I have no doubts where this man is now. I can promise you that if there was anyone that ever deserved to be in Heaven, that this man ranks to the top of the list. You will be missed my friend and I consider myself blessed for knowing you and being able to share time together. Prayers and condolences to his family and friends. :'(
