Donnie Ray Wynn

January 09, 1941 ~ November 17, 2022

Donnie Ray Wynn, 81, of Vero Beach passed away on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at the Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital.

Donnie Ray was born January 9, 1941 in Jasper, Florida to Jody and Netty (nee Fennell) Wynn. He grew up in a commercial fishing family and learned the value of hard work at a young age. Later in life he had his own landscaping business. It is said that if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life. Donnie Ray enjoyed the outdoors so much that even when he wasn’t tending to someone else’s yard and plants he kept busy making his own yard look amazing. Of all the plants Donnie Ray planted and kept it was roses that were his lifelong favorite.

He was a devoted member of the Sebastian Church of God in Sebastian, Florida. He loved his Lord, his church, and his family. Donnie also loved to laugh. Rumor has it that once you got him started that it was nearly impossible to get Donnie Ray to stop laughing.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 38 years, Carolyn Wynn; daughter, Tiny Ann; his parents and 18 brothers and sisters.

Donnie Ray is survived by his children, Michael Wynn of Vero Beach; Donnie (Kathy) Wynn of Odenville, Alabama; Margo Wynn of Vero Beach; Shelly Calvert of Indianapolis, Indiana and Wynn (Wade) Turner; grandchildren, John (Gabby) Thornell; Amy (Casey) Thornell; Jack Thornell; Christopher Wynn; Jesse Wynn; Christy (Erick) Prado; Jessica Wynn-Kentorri; Victoria and Ashley; sisters, Bonnie McGowan of Vero Beach and Ester (Walley) Sowell of Altoona, Florida; and a host of nieces and nephews.

My dad was the sweetest man I have ever met, People from his generation didn’t have many advantages but he worked hard and took care of all his family. We talked on the phone all the time and I can’t stop expecting his voice on the other end of the line. Happy Birthday to the worlds greatest dad, I love you and miss you so much. Please be happy and at peace. If you see mom, say Hi, and tell her I love her and miss her too. Continue to watch over us like you always have. I love you so much.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
