Donald Roy Tweed III “D.R.” passed away April 27th, 2018 after fighting the good fight with cancer.

He was 59 years young with a heart and soul that could keep up with the best of em'. D.R. was born on October 21st, 1958 in Des Moines, Iowa to Donald Tweed and Mary-Ellen Tweed. He worked hard all his life including service in the U.S. Navy, but his greatest accomplishment was being a husband and father. He married the girl next door and love of his life Donna Tweed on February 11th,1994. D.R. had two daughters Mishayla Tweed and Alicia Tweed. D.R. referred to his wife and daughters as “His girls”. He put not only them but everyone before himself. His laughter contagious, his work ethic and compassion admirable, and his vast knowledge inspiring. He could spark a conversation with anyone no matter what walk of life. A good time to him was with his family, Busch beer in hand cheering on the Seattle Mariners and Seahawks and walking his fur babies; Peaches and Butters. He enjoyed old movies, astronomy, classic Rock n Roll, sports, and life in general. He always enjoyed taking in the views down at the beach and would always say, “When you are standing here all of life's problems are behind you”. 

Our sweet Donald and Daddy you will be with us every day in everything we do. Our love for you is like the ocean, where you found your peace. Deep, wide, and everlasting

He is survived by his wife Donna Tweed, daughters Mishayla and Alicia Tweed. His fur babies Peaches and Butters Tweed. Sisters, Pam O’donoghue and Stephanie Tweed. Brothers Daniel Tweed and Butch Wood and many nieces, nephews and beloved friends.
