    Donny will be missed among us friends of his. I will never forget this year’s turkey hunt with him in Oklahoma. He loved telling his story of shooting two turkeys with one shot, and I laughed with him about it because I shot one turkey twice. Donny did his best to make folks around him feel welcomed and appreciated. It was a pleasure to know him and call him my friend. Rest easy, partner.
