  • Donnie (Mole) was a friend and a great individual to work with. I always enjoyed his company. Me working for dupont and Donnie working for GM was strange at first but we became a team working every day 10+ years together in paint. The stories were endless and I always appreciated his tales from the Vietnam War. At times I felt guilty for missing the draft after hearing his stories and what he did. His stories of his family and the house he grew up in. I knew a lot about him and his family although i never really met his them. I haven’t seen him in a few years and once again wish I did before this sad time. May you rest in peace and thank you once again for your service as I always told you.

  • A good Brother “No Name” you will be missed by all of us . LLRB.

  • DonnyvI’m so sorry for your families loss.

  • Donnie and I were friends for so long I can’t remember where or how it first started, if Donnie was your friend you knew he had your back, anytime, anyplace. We were out one evening way back when Delaware was a lot less populated and enjoying adult beverages, we happened to run across a local street racing legend, in his mind, Donnie and I discussed it and I threw 500 dollars on the pool table, calling mr hotshot out, little did I know until later one of the sidekicks says to Donnie we should roll the squid (navy guy) I noticed a little commotion over my shoulder but was listening to all the reasons that mr hotshot couldn’t race me, I was over 16, I knew how to shift a 4 speed and so on. Donnie comes back up beside me and calmly said mr [email protected]$$ isn’t gonna race, let’s get out of here, as we walk by the gentleman sitting on the floor Donnie tells me he wanted to roll me, but Donnie explained that I was his friend and nobody was gonna roll me while he was around!! My friend, my brother and I guess my protector every now and then, from loading a car in the back of a uhaul truck and driving it 270 miles, not sure how we were going to get it out, Donnie was with me. You will be missed my friend, ride hard, ride fast, keep an eye on your family as only you can, love ya brother 😎🏴‍☠️

  • To the Moore family. My condolences
