Donnie was born on April 28, 1959, to Albert and Patricia Ingram in Xenia, Ohio. He passed away on Sunday June 12, 2022, at his daughter’s home in Maysville, OK, at age 63.
Donnie graduated from Coalgate HS. Donnie was a concrete construction worker. He spent his early adult years building airport runways and worked on many military bases around the country. This work also took him to several Caribbean Islands and Cuba. Donnie spent some years working his dad’s tire shop when he moved back to Coalgate, before becoming the owner/operator of his own concrete business.
Donnie was always kind at heart. He liked to make people laugh and lift their spirit. He was also a junk collector. He could see value in just about anything. Donnie loved to hunt for rocks, arrowheads, marbles, glass bottles, and buried treasure. He enjoyed fishing, camping, and the outdoors.
