    Have not seen our Donny “Poon” Sharp in decades…

    Hanging on the corner…driving around drinking…tormenting the Parkside Police…we never thought such a day would come.

    You will be missed, Donny…saddened by your passing…but you will always be fondly remembered.

    My family will always cherish going to Sandy Hook Restaurant in Matlachey,Florida,and eating giant onion rings as big as my head, and conch fritters.Don would order the prime rib and bring it home for Chiquita to have some dinner.We would drive back home in his vintage Cadillac convertible with the top down with a perfect tropical breeze and watched the beautiful Florida sunset.The beer always tasted best in Cape Coral,Florida,and it was chilled to a perfect 39 degrees.I reminisce sitting by their pool and smelling the sweet cigar smoke as Don listened to classic 60s music and we would just listen to the cars occasionally roll by on the parkway.These moments will always exist in our hearts and minds.So that way Don Sharpe will always live on with us in the things we do and wherever we go.”The King is gone,but he’s not forgotten.”
