Donny grew up in Henrietta, had a long career at Monroe Community College, and raised his family in Fairport. He enjoyed cooking, gardening, golfing, playing horseshoes, and frequent visits to the casino. He had a talent for filling rooms with laughter and always had a joke at the ready with his quick wit.
Donny’s children will host calling hours on Monday, October 16th from 4pm – 7pm at Miller Funeral and Cremation Services (3325 S Winton Rd, Rochester, NY 14623). A private service will be held for family to attend. In lieu of flowers, buy yourself a scratch off or lottery ticket. A Celebration of Life will take place at the Victor Village Inn (34 E Main St, Victor, NY 14564) on Tuesday, October 17th at 3pm. All are welcome to attend.
All who know Donny would agree that he would have an inappropriate comment to share at this moment to keep the laughter flowing. Smell you later.
