Worked with Donny at BFI, great man. He was intense in his work ethic, I guess that is why when he retired they came out with the I SURVIVED DONNY SHORE bumper sticker. He was never replaced and the weld shop was never the same without him. My condolences to the Shore family, may he rest well.
Thank you Donny for your time, leadership and guidance. Wise man who taught those who worked with him well.

I thought the world of my cousin Donny he was the nicest man. Always willing to help he put a new roof on my house, paneled rooms for us... He always took the time to care ! Pauline & Donny have been a real close team since their first apartment on North Road. She will really miss him....they where together as a team and very proud of their family. When they lived in Florida they would come to our house for lunch...We had always a laugh & a good time. I'm so sorry for the loss. HE was great ! Love, Karen Greenwood Flynn-McCabe

He was an amazing great-grandfather who enjoyed music and playing his guitar. His great-grandson Ryland loved it. David and myself loved when he sang at the campfires when we went camping with Mom and Dad. We also enjoyed relaxing with family and friends when we lived in Florida with them always playing his guitar around the campfires So many happy memories we will never forget ❤️ Love you Dad
