Donovan affectionately known as “Lil Bishop” was a great family man; he loved being around and participating in all family events. He was surrounded by his siblings Darlene and JayTee; they shared a great unbreakable bound of friendship, laughter and most of all, love.
Church was a very intricate part of Donovan’s life. He was an active church member, growing up under the Leadership of the late Dr. D. Rayford Bell and the Christ Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith. To describe who he was, Donovan would be labeled as fellow musician, radical praiser, and an anointed young man of GOD with a bright future ahead of him.
Donovan was a visionary and progressive soul, that had aspired to start his own company, with the help of GOD in February 2016, Donovan launched his business DLaron Designs to express his creativity. From there he became employed with Adam. J Casey Funeral Services of Distinction doing memorial marketing campaigns that expanded to different flyers, banners, to most recently church events.

This union would complete Donovan’s very being.
