A native of Bonifay, Florida, Donald resided in Putnam County since 1959 coming from Bonifay. He served honorably in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Donald retired from Georgia Pacific following 43 years as a machine tender in the tissue paper division. Following his time at Georgia Pacific, he worked several years with Weiser Security at the Putnam County Courthouse. He was a very active member of the Palatka ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where he had held several positions and worked with the youth. An avid FSU fan, he also enjoyed fishing and traveling and taking cruises. Most important to Donald though was time spent with his family and especially his grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, J.D. Wells and Edna Mae Wells and a sister, Evelyn Bryant.

Prayers for Donald’s family, he was a good friend and I have wonderful memories of eating some great catfish dinners at Bradley’s with Donald and Judy and the wheelers, and the evenings sitting on the riverfront trying to catch a sunset. But maybe best of all was the tailgating at church. Memories I’ll always cherish.RIP Friend.
