July 09, 2007 Two Drown at White Western Lake Two adults, a husband and wife, drowned early this afternoon at White Western Lake, off Hwy 77 in Bay County. The Bay County Sheriff’s Office received a call at 1:02 pm from a female bystander at the lake that two people had apparently drowned. When deputies arrived they discovered the body of 37 year old Beverly LeDonne on shore. A relative had gone into the water and pulled her body to shore when they saw her floating. The body of her husband, 41 year old Mark LeDonne, was missing. The BCSO Air Unit and the Dive Team was dispatched and began searching for Mark LeDonne. After taking statements from relatives and witnesses, it was determined that the LeDonne’s had been out on the lake earlier today in a boat with their children. The family decided to swim to shore. Mrs. LeDonne and her children made it to shore but when she noticed her husband was still out on the lake and in distress, she left the children to help him. She swam out to him and shortly afterward was seen floating in the water. The body of Mark LaDonne was found this afternoon shortly before 4 pm. The LeDonne’s were from out of town visiting relatives who live at White Western Lake. Report Prepared by R. Sasser with Information by Lt. D. Delaney

I cannot find the words to describe the deep feelings of sadness that followed upon hearing of this terrible tragedy. Mark was one of my earliest friends and teammates. My prayers are with all of the family during these trying times.
