love, camp, encouragement

Donnie was an amazing evangelist and minister. But get him off the stage and out from behind the pulpit and he was one of the most fun loving guys you could ever know. He was always having fun, except during flag football games at UOP then he got a little intense. He was high on life and high on Jesus all the time. I remember being over at his house on Longview avenue with Sean Smith, Jeff Foust and some other guys just hanging out. I told him I was getting married and he stopped, did this slow turn, looked at me and was like “WHAAAATTTT?” I knew he was joking but that was him. A couple of years ago he came to Harvest Church in Elk Grove, he gave me on his big bear hugs and said “I love you bro.” That was the last thing he ever said to me. Thing is I went to UOP to be part of Chi Alpha. I was planning on going to Cal Poly. But if I don’t meet Donnie I don’t go to UOP, I may not have stayed in Stockton and I would not have met my wife in Lodi. Donnie Moore was a major part of my life and I will miss him dearly.
The thoughts and prayers of my entire family are with you.
