Donald (Donnie) Gray Thames Jr, 64, of Powhatan, Virginia gained his heavenly wings on July 17, 2022 in his home.
Donald was a loving son, brother, uncle, father, and one very proud Papa. Donnie worked for Inland Containers for 25 years and retired from PCA. A quirky man with a loveable, laughable, and joking personality who adored and lived for his children and grandson. His grandson was the absolute light of his life and spoiling him quickly became his hobby. A hard worker and great friend to have. Donnie enjoyed movies and TV series. He was a big fan of the Star Trek series. Donnie will forever be missed by all who knew him.
Donnie was proceeded in death by his parents, Donald G. Thames Sr., Annie L. Thames; and infant daughter Natasha M. Thames. He is survived by his two children, Jamie L. Thames and Christopher L. Thames (Melissa); grandson Trenton N. Thames; sister Delores Matthews; brother Ed “Jerry” Willoughby; niece Tracie Willoughby; nephew Shawn Willoughby (Stacy); great nieces’ and nephew, Corey, Erica, Alexis and Kristen; close dear friend Faith Young; grand-pups Gunny and Cali; and a host of family and friends.
Services were held privately.
“If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh yes these things, I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow look for the sunshine of tomorrow”
We love you Dad
