My heart goes out to the Huebert Family at the loss of their father, grandfather and great grandfather. Doni seemed to enjoy life to the fullest, always with a smile on his face. Heaven has gained another Angel. May our Lord hold all of you in the palms of His hand during this time of sadness and celebration of Doni’s life.

You will be missed by so many. Your presence made everyone smile, your stories had everyone listening, your kindness had everyones heart happy and your infectious laugh ALWAYS had everyone laughing with you. I’ll miss your little dance moves when we would exercise, your strong loud voice yelling “BINGO” in excitement for a prize of peanuts , your quickness to go on any putting including just a just a drive by your farm. “Oh Mr. Don” (as I would always say) Rest In Peace you were a wonderful man and I am glad I was privileged to meet you.
