    Known for his effort and willingness to help with even total strangers, most did not know the strength he had to uphold, while battling his cancer. Even through the struggles, he continued to possess a contagious smile and an entertaining sense of humor.

    Though his time here on earth was short, he was nothing but ready to be in the hands of the Lord. The pain is gone. The medicine, chemo, and treatments are gone. The worry, the burden, and the stresses are no more. The fight is over, the battle has ended, and Donnie has won a life, in Eternity, with our amazing God. “Even though I walk through the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
    Those left to cherish his memory are his partner, Troy Earnest; his mother and father, Jean and Lonnie Cline of Taylorsville, and Otis Tilley of Hiddenite; his sister, Angela Adams and husband Donald; a step-sister, Courtney Backes; a step-brother, Josh Wears; nieces, Katie Livingston, Emily Livingston, and Danielle Adams; nephews, Jay Livingston and Dustin Adams; great-nephew, Camden Jax; and a longtime best friend of 20 years, Billy Gene Bowman.
