I too was shocked to hear of this today. Donovan was a super nice guy, fun to race with and to throw back a few cold ones with. My heart goes out to his family and all his loved ones, he will be missed. Thanks for posting it here, Andy.

I joined this forum quite some time ago and never thought to look for anything when Donovan passed. I got to know him pretty well through a mutual friend we would hang out at his place and talk cars and home brewing some nights. I finally convinced him to sell me his vette after 6 months or so. He was a very fun person to be around and had lots of stories to tell. I still have his vette and I know he would love it if he could see it today.

We never did hear how he died. Do you have anymore information on that?

I didnt know his family really so I was not told in great detail. I was told second hand from the friend that introduced us that it was a very aggresive cancer unfortunately.

I was co-driving with him the day he wrecked the Z.
