Donald was a reserved man with a very large heart. In his neighborhood, the children nearby adored him. When he was “puttering” around the house, he liked fixing things that he found in disrepair, and he found joy in putting things together again. Because of his quiet nature, Donald loved playing with animals and playing video games, two things he could enjoy and bond with others about without having to be too extraverted.
When Donald’s brother, Kenneth, stopped golfing, Kenneth gave Donald the unused clubs. Donald learned how to play golf with his new equipment, and never stopped. However, Donald’s favorite sport was one that he watched, both on TV and, whenever he possibly could, in person. The Indy 500 is a yearly race car event that Donald watched with a passion.
