In Memory of Robert Donald (Donnie) Brinkley lost to Agent Orange 2016.
Donnie was drafted into the United States Army right out of high school in 1966 and discharged 8-1968.
He was a proud member of the 1st Battalion 27th Infantry Wolfhounds. His overseas duty was in Cu Chi Vietnam.
Donnie was awarded many medals but was most proud of his Purple Heart and Bronze Star.
Donnie passed away January 1, 2016 from Agent Orange Coronary Artery Disease, Ischemic Heart Disease, chronic renal disease. neuropathy and Type 2 Diabetes.
Donnie was one hell of a man and one hell of a fighter especially for the elderly and children.
He is survived by his wife, Lonnie, 2 sons and 1 daughter. My husband was very proud to be able in June 2015 to walk our daughter down the aisle at her wedding.
I spent the last year of his life bathing, feeding and taking care of him and I had NO problem what-so-ever taking care of him and would proudly do so again!!!!
I love you my brave husband,
