"David collected friends like some collect other things,
Please know you brought joy into his very being!
When a friend was lost, we felt deep sorrow,
But he would want you all to be happy today and tomorrow."
Poem written by David's wife Catherine Parker.
David MacDonald was born to Alick and Joyce MacDonald on July 5, 1948 in Saint Paul, Minnesota. David was called home to be with his Heavenly Father on August 9, 2021. He was survived by his wife Catherine Parker, son Troy MacDonald, and grand-daughter Alexis as well as numerous friends. He was known for being a wonderful husband, father, and friend. He had a huge heart and a deep compassion for animals. David was a highly decorated service hero serving his country for many years in both the Army and Navy. He will live on forever in the hearts of his friends and family. David had made it clear to all of his family that he did not want any funeral service to be held and for everyone to remember him as he was in life. His wife would like any condolences or donations to be made out to David's son, Troy MacDonald.
