Donny was a great guy with a quiet demeanor and a ready smile. He will be missed.

I've been searching for Donnie for months and just found this. I feel as though I've been hit by a truck. Donnie and I were very good friends for several years in NYC in the mid-70s...we went to each other's gigs and could always count on each other when we needed a shoulder. To say he will be missed is the understatement of the decade; he was sweet, kind, generous, gentle, amazingly talented, and one of the funniest men I've ever had the privilege to know. My heart goes out to his son and his family...Donnie was one of those people about whom you could say "they broke the mold" and truly mean it.
