TROUTMAN, N.C. - It is with a heavy heart that I must inform everyone that my husband, friend and other half of my soul, Donnie Ray Poole, left this earth Saturday, May 18, 2019, and moved to a better place.
Donnie was born February 11, 1941, and was an active member of the New Perth A.R.P. Church in Troutman. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his father, Elmer; and mother, Connie Poole.
He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Sylvia Perkins Poole; two brothers, Bob and Jim (Pat) Poole; two sons, Joseph and Jonathan Poole; two grandsons, Alex and Carson Poole; and one great-grandson, Ryder Poole.
The words of 2 Timothy 4:6-7 were never appropriate than for Donnie: "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
A private graveside service will be held.
Donnie will always be remembered and cherished in our hearts.
