Donny was as passionate about the games we play as he was about ‘The Pink Ball Snooker Room’ at Wooloongabba. He would spend many hours with the youngsters in the Pink Ball and I am sure was a great support to room’s proprietor and QBSA Life member, Noel Gourlay.

During the 2017 Snooker and Billiards seasons, Donny would support the team Robert Day was playing in and had done so for many years.

Donny was 79 years of age, celebrating his birthday just last weekend.
