Donald W. Furrer
Donny is the type of man you cannot help but want to be around. His genuinely good hearted, strong yet gentle, compassionate, and caring personality makes you want to be a better person. Donny truly lives by the awesome values, morals, and ethics that were instilled in him. He is a hard worker, a great father, and an awesome husband. He is a nonjudgmental, fair man whose respect for others gains him respect in return. Donny is a quiet man with never ending patience and a calmness that would put anyone at ease. Donny is definitely an outdoorsman, his favorite things are fishing, cooking, and joking around with his friends and family. His favorite line was always, “You can’t bs a bs’er”. Donny always wanted others to be happy, and would take the backseat to put others first.
On Saturday, March 21st, 2020 one of the greatest men; whom I was lucky enough to love, closed his eyes and went to be with his brother. He is now free of the pain cancer caused him to endure for the first time in almost a year. Donny is a fighter, and I can honestly say he did not lose the battle; but, it grabbed ahold of him as he was fighting till the end.
