Donald R. Johnston Jr., 52, passed away Monday, August 10, 2020 due to complications from his battle against cancer. Born and raised in Wisconsin, he lived the last thirty-two years in central Florida, the last twenty of those in the Bradenton, FL area. Donny became an expert millworker, with many of his creations installed in some of the most prestigious and well-known homes and institutions around the world.

He is survived by his mother, Marion Johnston (Bradenton, FL), his sister, Nadine King (Jerry), brother, Brian Johnston (Melissa), brother, Kevin Johnston, his nieces; Lauren Johnston and Madison Johnston and nephew, Cory Johnston, all of Florida; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

A Private Service will be held at his graveside in Lakeland, FL. Rest In Peace, Donny. You will forever be missed and are forever loved.
