Donnie D. Wilmott

Donnie D. WilmottOn April 29, 2020, Donald Dean Wilmot III received his wings. Donnie, as he was called by his family and friends, was loved by everyone. He loved to play golf, running in marathons, and most of all, he loved being with his family. They took trips to Hawaii and the Philippines; they did so much together as a family.

Donnie didn’t make enemies – he made friends wherever he went. He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Frances Wilmot, and his 3 children: Nathan, Sidney, and Justin. He is survived by his mother and step-father, Kathy and Ron Gatchell. He is survived by his sisters and their spouses: Kim and Benny, Karen and Dave, Kerrie and Barry, Shelly and Luis, and his brother Wade. He is survived by his Aunt Brenda and Uncle Mike Arnaz from Fremont and his Uncle Junior Forsythe from Tennessee. He leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded by his father Donald Wilmot Jr. and his grandparents Donald and Marion Wilmot Sr.

The family will hold a public viewing on Saturday, May 9, from 2-5 p.m.

“Due to the virus, we ask for people to stay in their cars as only 10 people will be allowed in at a time. Please follow the family and mortuary’s wishes.”
