In Memory Of
Joe Donald
1958 - 2023

Our dear, Joe Donald, 65, entered his home in heaven Tuesday, November 28, 2023.

He was born February 21, 1958, in Topeka, Kansas, the son of Paul Donald and Carol (Johnson) Boles.

Joe was a real estate investor in Topeka, a career he held all of his life. He also served as a journeyman electrician at the United States Postal Service in Topeka for 25 years, retiring 2008.

He was a member of Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Topeka. He enjoyed racing corvettes and cheering on his Kansas City Chiefs. He also enjoyed hunting rattle snakes and fishing.

Joe married Monica Bahm in the early 1980s. They later divorced. On February 21, 2005, he married Bonnie Moss in Bermuda and she will always love him. She survives. Other survivors include three sons, Paul, Joey, and Christopher; step-son, Aaron Moss; two brothers, John and Jeff; two step-siblings, Brent Boles and Brenda Fenner. His favorite saying was “this year is going to be the best rattlesnake hunt ever!”. He loved his wife, Bonnie, his kids, grandkids and all of his wonderful friends.

He was preceded in death by parents, step-father, Darryl Boles, brother, Jay Donald, and step-son, Joshua Swindell.

Mass of Christian Burial will be 11:30 a.m. Saturday, December 9, 2023 at Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 3601 SW 17th St., Topeka. Interment will follow at Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka.
