Donald William Brenner was born on October 22, 1955, to Bob and Henrietta Brenner. Donald grew up on the East side of Detroit, where he attended grade school at St. Juliana's. Then came his ' Oh S*** ' years at Servite High School, where he portrayed the 'CHARACTER' and loved having a good time. After high school, his interests become hunting and camping but his real passion was his career with cars. Donald was a 'hands on' kind of guy when it came to working on cars. Once his career took off, he decided to settle down and have a family, which became one of his top priorities. Donald was blessed with two children, Brittany Nicole (19) and Robert Matthew (13), who became his life. Donald was also close with his brother Paul and two sisters - Aileen and Ellen and their families. Holidays were always a special time. This truly great guy passed away on November 3, 2004. Donald's promise to us was 'When you see it hailing outside, it's just me in Heaven throwing ice chips down to you.'
