    Since hearing the dreadful news September 29, 2016, there have been overwhelming expressions of sadness regarding the passing on of, Donald. As friends of the family, my Susan and I would like to say from our hearts, the deepest condolences to Lynn, and the Gantt Family. If you only knew Donald, through work, social and community events, Donald never lost his passion for faith, family, and friends. Donald was an exceptional person. People still felt like they really knew him, no one will ever forget him.

  3. The nicest guy I know. He was always smiling, always happy go lucky. My dog had puppies and Don took a boy ‘George’. They were a perfect match! We will miss you Don, ‘my baby daddy’!

    • Thank you Wanda. George was a special companion of Don’s and he missed him very much as I will miss my brother.

    Don was a unique soul and one of kind. I deeply mess him but know he is happy being by God’s side. I got the privilege to know him since I started back at KXXV in 2014. The one thing that drew me close to him was his positive spirit and funny jokes. Plus he could fix anything and when you talk to him you felt you known him all your life. I will never forget him and my prayers are with his family.
