Donald L. “Donny” McGinnis, 48, of Lexington, Nebraska, died Thursday, January 10th, 2013, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.
He was born March 2nd, 1964, in Cozad, Nebraska, to Franklin Robert and Clara Louise (Zogg) McGinnis. Donny graduated from Lexington High School with the class of 1982. Following graduation he worked for Cornland Dressed Beef, Orthman Manufacturing and Monroe Auto. He was united in marriage to Kelly Garner on April 11th, 1986, in Lexington. Three sons were born to this marriage; Michael, Anthoney and Nathanial.
Through the years Donny drove truck and did odd jobs to keep busy. You could say he was a jack of all trades, but the master of none! Donny had a heart of gold and loved being around people, visiting and telling stories. He was passionate about his music, his family, especially his little granddaughter, MacKenzie Elizabeth, as well as his nieces and nephew.
Donny loved being outdoors, he enjoyed hunting and fishing. He never missed a Nebraska Cornhusker football game and was their biggest cheerleader. Donny will be very missed by all who knew and loved him.
