We will never know why Donny Prouty was taken from Jean, Donny, Laura and the rest of his loving family on Thursday, July 4th. But we do know that we, as a Community want to help the family with the End of Life costs associated with such a tragic loss they will face in the days to come. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they try to sort out what, where, why and how to deal with their loss. Donny was the type of guy, no matter what his schedule was, would stop and take the time to “chat” even though his wife was waiting for him to get back home sooner than later. He would always be there to lend a helping hand, even if he was there just for support! Never complained much, just kind of had that let it roll type of attitude if he didn’t agree with something. He would never expect anything in return, just answered with the typical “No problem” answer. The Town of Hardwick, both citizens and employees will miss your dedication, your kindness and your presence or just sitting next to you at one of the local establishments (Mimi’s or the Whistle Stop especially) while enjoying your meal!! The Hardwick Fair or the Tractor Pulls at the Winery certainly won’t be the same without you there either. Watching the “Friendly” cousin rivalry between you and Bill to see who can out pull one another or outbid each other at local auctions. Please give what you can to help out the family, no amount is ever too small. Donny will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts. Thank you.
