Donnie passed away on October 30, 2013. He was born May 13, 1974, in Lancaster, California, to Rae Jean Dodson and Donald Bruce Lovett Sr. He graduated from Roseburg Sr. High School in 1992, continuing his education earning a B.S. in Health Promotion / Fitness Management from Southern Oregon University. Donnie had a passion for anything sports. He especially loved football, leading his team to two championships in high school, and playing through his college career. After college, Donnie pursued a career in personal fitness training for a few years in Portland, OR. He eventually moved to Tempe, AZ, where he became a licensed real estate agent. His charisma was captivating, he was always the life of the party, the best and most reliable friend you could have, and had a signature laugh that continues to resonate. He left us way too early, and is truly missed.
