I just recently found out about Donnie's passing and it hit me like a ton of bricks. Donnie was a central figure for me during my tennis years. He was incredibly dedicated to me not only as a tennis player but also as a young man growing up. He taught me many lessons but most importantly showed me how to go through life and do your best to be a good person. He passed far too soon and my heart felt condolences to Cindy and Kyana whom I also got to know growing up. I'm sure all those who got to know Donnie through the years are feeling his passing as well. You'll be missed.

Donnie was our family's tennis coach and life mentor. He was very special at the Club at Harper's Point. He had a passion to make you a better tennis player. Donnie was a great storyteller and gave wise advice. He had a great sense of humor too. Donnie helped my two sons greatly with their tennis. He loved to talk sports with them during lessons since they were knowledgeable like he was. Even when they no longer took lessons, he remained interested in their tennis. Donnie encouraged me to keep up my tennis in my older age. He made me feel comfortable and gave me confidence to return to the court. He talked to me about his church, his family, and about the latest tennis players. When the pandemic hit, I postponed tennis lessons with him for a while, and over a year later we finally scheduled future tennis lessons again. But it was not meant to be as sadly he passed a day before my lesson. We are forever grateful to you, Donnie, for the positive impact you made on our family. I am sorry I did not get to see you again as I had hoped to, but I know you are looking down from heaven smiling, proud of all your family, church, and tennis accomplishments. You touched so many lives. I bet you will in heaven too. Rest in peace Coach Donnie. A job well done. We love you and we will never forget you. May the love and peace of God be with your special family.

Donnie was a wonderful, funny man and my husband Georg and I enjoyed our time with him at Club at Harper's Pt. We will miss his humor, his smile and very special personality that cared so much for so many. He loved his family dearly. To Debra, Hannah, and Kyanna and the rest of his family, we wish you God's love, comfort and peace. May He hold you in the palms of His mighty hands forever! Rest In Peace Dear Coach Donnie.
