Donald and I worked together at Pisgah Yarn in Old Fort. It was 2003 when I started work there and I was 16. All the guys called him Bubba. I'll remember Bubba for his playful spirit. He had a beautiful laugh.
I'll never forget the summer he had a water fight with some of the guys he worked with. I came into work that morning and he was soaking wet! I was like, "Bubba what happened?" As he proceeded to tell me all about it, while smiling and laughing.

On days the boss man was having a bad day, Bubba would greet him by saying "Hellwo!" in a calm, Elmer Fudd-sounding voice. (That boss man being my father. Who hired him.)

Donald was a big kid at heart. I will remember him for his childlike innocence. And his genuine curiosity of learning about others. He was a fun guy to chat with and have a conversation.

I hope I'll chat with him again someday. Rest in peace friend.
