Anthony Donatello, 27, unexpectedly passed away Wednesday, March 30th. Anthony was an enormous bright light in the life of many of his family and friends. Anthony had so much love for his family, his little black puppy, Creed, and his many friends. He enjoyed playing World of Warcraft until 4:00 am, collecting a group of un-expecting friends for an impromptu vacation, and being the life of any social gathering. Anthony leaves behind a family that will love him more than he will ever get the chance to know. We were only so fortunate to witness just how bright he burned, and we can only cherish the lasting impressions of the son, brother, and friend to all that was Anthony Gerald Donatello.

Anthony Donatello is survived by his Mother, Kristine Praytor Donatello, and his Father, Kirt Anthony Donatello. He is also survived by his grandmothers, Linda Praytor and Rosalie Donatello, as well as his sister Ashley Donatello Salinas, and her husband Javi Salinas, and niece, Ellie Salinas, his brother Andrew Donatello and his wife Brianna Donatello, brother Zach Donatello, sister Sarah Donatello, and stepmother Christie Phillips Donatello. He is also survived by numerous loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He is preceded in death by Grandpa Jerry Mays, and Grandpa Dan Praytor.

During this difficult time our family asks that you please provide any pictures, memories, stories, or simply kind words of Anthony.
