Don Micheal Dionne, 33, of Portland died April 7, 2011.

He was born July 25, 1977. Don Micheal was a person who was full of life and loved to live it to the fullest. Like anyone else, he experienced obstacles. He was motivated at a young age to see through each one that life put in front of him. And at the end, each moment made him a stronger individual. At 16, Don was tragically hit by a drunken driver walking home one night. After three months in a coma and a few months of recovery, Don Michael was appreciative for the second chance at life and most of all for the friends and family that stood by him throughout.

Born and raised partly in Portland, in 2004 he decided to move to Maryland. While residing in Ocean City, he loved caring for his niece and nephew, Mijah and Tyler, making him wish he had had kids of his own. Making people laugh and brightening up any room he walked into is what is remembered. Being truthful, loyal and always there for his friends and family are only a few of the things that will be missed about Don Micheal. Missing Don’s presence and beautiful spirit is his mother, Thelma, who adored him; his little sister, Patricia; best friend, Keith and his wife, Kathy; nieces, Lijah and Alicia; nephews, Vincent Micheal, Tyler, Iziah and Keith Jr.; oldest sister, Robin; many aunts and uncles and cousins; and people who only knew him for a short period of time.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, Woody Carter and Judy Western of Camden.

A memorial service will be held in Portland at a later date.
