In memory of
Jackie "Jack" Donaldson, aged 80, of Gardendale, Alabama passed peacefully on February 9, 2019. Jack is survived by his wife of 56 years, Pat Wood Donaldson. Jack was the proud father of Darryl (Tricia) and Dave (Kate) Donaldson who provided him with the joys of his life: granddaughters Lauren Donaldson and Kaitlyn (TD) Camp and grandsons Jake and Zack Ingram. He also loved his many nieces, nephews, cousins and virtually every child that was blessed to meet him. He is also survived by his siblings Don (Sonja), Betty (George) McDonald and Francis Messina. He was preceded in death by his parents as well as the people who raised him and saved his life, Mildred "Aunt Sis" and Herman Woodall. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, February 12 from 6pm to 8pm at The New Gardendale Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at the same location the following day at 11am with burial to follow at Elmwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that charitable donations be made to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital that supports and cares for all children...just as Jack did.
