Donn Obituary, Death- Hello Everyone, It is with profound sadness that I, Donn’s daughter, Lauren, share the heartbreaking news of my father’s passing on the night of November 1st. My mother, Earlene, and I were by his side, ensuring his comfort and surrounding him with love as he peacefully left this world. Although we are devastated by his loss, we take solace in knowing that he is now at peace.
For those of you who knew my dad, you’ll remember his unwavering fondness for Facebook. Despite my mother’s teasing about him “always being on that phone,” Dad cherished this platform for its unique ability to forge and nurture friendships and establish meaningful connections with all of you. It was, after all, the perfect arena for him to indulge in his passions: spirited discussions on politics and his undying love for baseball. Thus, it only seems fitting that we share this news with all of you here first.
We are currently working on finalizing the details for the funeral and viewing arrangements. We anticipate sharing this information within the next day or so. I have access to Dad’s phone and will be responding to messages on his behalf. You may also reach out to me directly at 314-882-7612 if you prefer. To my mother and me, Donn was our shining light and our unwavering anchor. His presence was truly irreplaceable, and there will never be another person quite like him. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you for the friendship and love you extended to our dad over the years. Your presence in his life was cherished, and we know he treasured each connection he made through Facebook. In these difficult times, your support means the world to us.
As we come to terms with our loss, we find comfort in the knowledge that Dad’s legacy lives on in the memories and interactions he shared with all of you. We invite you to share your memories, stories, and condolences, as they will undoubtedly provide solace and remind us of the enduring impact he had on so many lives. Once again, thank you for being a part of my father’s life and for your outpouring of love and support during this difficult time. With love and gratitude, Lauren and Earlene
