Donnie Crowder II

Crowder 1

Donnie Crowder II, affectionately known as Don Don, peacefully passed away on August 11th, 2022. He was preceded in death by his parents, Donnie and Cheryl Crowder. He leaves to cherish his memory, his brother, David Vernon, Uncles, Cecil Miller, Keith Miller, and James Crowder. His Aunts, Deborah Walker, Reneta (Ernest) Jones. Goddaughter, Rei’Yann Angus, Many cousins, family members and friends.

Don Don was known for his infectious energy. He always lit up every room he entered. One of his favorite sayings was “What you doin?”. He was the best cousin to many, an Uncle Don Don and big cousin and nephew to many, the cool friend to many, and also a very special companion to those very close to him.

He enjoyed life and often only wanted to be around those who did as well! He enjoyed life, was a “smooth talker” and always knew the right things to say. He was a movie fanatic! Even when the movie didn’t look like it would be worth watching, he’d talk you into watching it and before it was over, you’d realize “this was a pretty good movie” and he’d reply “see I told you, what we watching next” If you ever needed a snack, he was good for it! And if you ever wondered where your kid got that snack you told them they couldn’t have from, it was from Don Don.

Donnie loved to look good, always dressed from head to toe. He loved playing spades and knew he was the best hands down. Got cake or ice cream? If you did, you didn’t have much because he loved his sweets. Anyone that knew him had the pleasure of laughing a lot, sometimes until you cried, the pleasure of feeling good, the pleasure of being heard and the pleasure of learning something new.

Even when in pain, Donnie cracked jokes and made others around him feel good. He will always be remembered for his smile, his playful spirit, and the love he had for those who loved him.
