He worked for Bricklayers local 18 and H&H Waterproofing and Restoration. Donnie enjoyed spending time watching dirt track racing and demolition derbys with his brothers. Donnie took all of the memories of this time with his brothers and enjoyed sharing all of them with his children. Scott, his eldest son, took to it and raced for a few years. One of our favorite memories of dad is sneaking him and his brothers into the racetrack in the trunk of the car to avoid paying added admissions.
