The couple shared 50 blissful years together. Donald was a very hard worker and always provided for his family by whatever means necessary. He made his living as a lineman while working for, Triple S, as well as a few others. Family was everything to him and they were all very close knit. The kids spent a lot of wonderful times with their dad enjoying the great outdoors, doing things he enjoyed, such as hunting, fishing and running trot lines on the river.

Witty, funny and brilliant were a few of the words used to accurately describe Donald Cravy.
