Donnie is survived by his devoted wife of 53 years, Wanda Eaton; by two children: son, Tim Eaton and wife Renee and daughter, Amanda Clawson and husband Bryan; and by three brothers: Ronnie Eaton and wife Janice, Rondol Eaton, and Ricky Eaton and wife Sharon.  He is also survived by several nieces and nephews and a host of other family and friends to mourn his passing.

    Donnie meant so much to me personally & my wife Marsha. We reconnected by phone over the last several years. Growing up as kids, I always looked forward to spending time in the summer with my Eaton cousins in Keavy. Ronnie, Donnie, Rondal & Rick were like extra brothers. I can’t believe you’re gone, Donnie, but you’re in a much better place now with your beloved mom & dad & mamaw & papaw. Praise the Lord, no more pain & suffering! We’ll see you again some day. Love you, cuz!

    Donnie let the love of Hesus shine thru him every day. His faith could not be quenched! I am so happy that after talking to Do nie on the phone for a few years my wife got to meet him in person a few years ago when we stopped in KY on the way home from FL. When we walked into the living room Donnie jumped up from his Chai and ran up to my wife and gave her a big hug! Scared her to death! Who was this strange man!! Lol That was Donnie ! His love for others always showed. We laughed about that moment for years to come. I’m happy for you Donnie. You are with your Lord and Savior! But I miss you a lot Cuz!!
