    Our deepest sympathy to all of Donnie’s family. I will always remember the fun times as a teenager, when Donnie and Clara ran the Hi C at the Heckston church. We had hay rides, skating nights, plays, movies etc. They looked after all of us and showed us teenagers a great time.
    They did a lot in the community and for their family and friends. He will be remembered…

    I will remember Donnie fondly….when our group sang at the snowmobile barbecues, he would always ask me to sing “Yard Sale”. He was such a nice man.
