Donnie was a kindhearted, hardworking, and loving young man. Donnie graduated from Albert Gallatin Highschool in 2011, where he also attended the Fayette County Career and Technical Institute studying masonry and welding. Donnie worked at Tri-County Drain Specialist with his best friend Shadd Matthews. He loved spending time with his family and friends. Donnie’s nieces, Abri and Bria were his world. From sled riding in the yard, to swimming in the pool. The girls were always excited as soon as Uncle Donnie showed up. Donnie was a Fantasy Football fanatic where he loved to talk crap to his dad, brother and friends in the league. He was a yinzer at heart, loved the Steelers through and through. Every once in a while he would yell out “Roll Tide.” Donnie was a Starbucks lover where he would venture with his sister often. Donnie had the amazing opportunity of meeting people from all over the area. He would always speak highly about his Meadville friends and the people who helped him through his most difficult times. Anyone that knows Donnie, knows that he had a pure heart. At the end of the day, Donnie loved his mom and dad. He was their biggest fan, and they were his. Donnie was loved by many and will never be forgotten.
