I'm so sorry to learn of Donato's passing; I have many great memories of him over the years- and he always was smiling and laughing so much of the time. There were many times working with him at J. Melone & Sons that he was getting my brother Rob & I a good laugh throughout the day- and I can still remember so many of those times, and still getting a good chuckle now thinking about them! My deepest condolences - he will be dearly missed.
A gentleman who had a contagious smile. When in conversation there was always a positive outlook and laughter. Our heartfelt condolences. Prayers to family, Peace and Love Marcia Melone Stevens
