Donn was an example of strong faith and character, never missing an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus with those he met. He also valued the role of education, earning degrees from Bob Jones University, the Philadelphia Bible Institute, Florida State University, and Florida A&M University.
He is survived by his loving wife and sons, Bill (Margie) and Jimmy, his grandsons, Roy (Janice) and Brett, and his great grandchildren, Addison, JP, and Eli.
