I was just scrolling thru what was happening in Calhoun and saw Donzel's passing. We both had Calhoun roots and came to be friends as we pastored different churches in Webster. My very belated sympathies to all of his friends and family.
Sincerely, Rev. David Shaffer

We remember Donzel with great fondness. Donzel was serving Webster Springs Charge when we first met him and Emma.
He was our parish coordinator, they showed us both kindness and hospitality. We count them both among our dearest friends.
Donzel always knew you and acknowledged all. Rest in peace dear brother, you will be missed!
