He was married to the love of his life Tammy for 48 years. Donnie worked for many years as a “Boat Captain”. He retired and was able to enjoy his years doing what he loved most, “Playing with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren”. He lived his life to provide for his family. He had a God-given gift as a “Jack of all trades”. He built our family home and loved wood working. His joy came from watching his family success. He had great pride in his kids and grandchildren. He was always the voice of reason and had a way being the mediator. He was a man of great faith and love for Jesus Christ.
The family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses at Terrebonne General, Mary Bird Perkins, Dwight Matherne and a special thank you to “his Angel” Angie and the team of the Haydel Hospice.
