The family in Football 2002 with Nephew Matt Walker

Tom– For the past 20+ years has coached football at both the college and high school levels in his ‘spare time’.  He is currently at Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD where he coaches the Defensive Line.  Tom is a USA Boxing coach.  He also enjoys hunting and fishing although his real love is finding old Saabs. His dream day consists of “playing” with his Saabs, slowly restoring his favorites. When he can’t be playing with his Saabs he can be found at Fort Dodge Transmission, the transmission and auto repair business that he started in 1980. He and Patti also enjoy Dancing every chance they get!
 New Year 2013 2 Patti– Patti, mother of 3 and retired special education teacher, spends her days working at Fort Dodge Transmission, selling cars at Tom Donney Motors which she and Tom own. When she’s not there you can usually find her outside playing with her flower beds, which sometimes resembles more of a weed bed! Her absolute favorite pastime is spending time with her grandchildren Tricia Cathleen, Hailey Ann, & Justis Tim!
