Donald Charles Walsh, born on March 22, 1966, in Central Falls, Rhode Island, left this world on July 21, 2023, in Virginia Beach, VA. He was 57 years old.

Donald, known for his unwavering commitment and dedication, spent a good part of his career as an Electrician for KC Electric.

Beyond his professional life, Donald had a deep love for restoring old cars, with a special fondness for his 1968 Mercury Cougar. It was his lifelong goal to bring it back to its former glory, a testament to his determination and perseverance.

Music was one of Donald’s true joys, and he held a special place in his heart for the band Queen. Among their many incredible songs, his favorite was “Liar,” which undoubtedly resonated with him on a personal level.

Donald’s journey took him from his birthplace in Rhode Island to Virginia Beach as a child, where he spent most of his formative years. He graduated from First Colonial High School and pursued further education at Vo Tech to become an electrician, setting the stage for his successful career.

He leaves behind cherished memories in the hearts of his loved ones, including his parents, Michael and Barbara Walsh, his beloved son, Ryan Warren, and his sister, Stephanie Vallee.

As we bid farewell to Donald Charles Walsh, let us remember his unwavering commitment to his craft, his love for restoring old cars, and his passion for music. May his spirit continue to inspire us as we carry forward his legacy of resilience and determination.

A memorial service will be held on August 8th, 2023 at 7:00 PM at Altmeyer Funeral Home, Southside Chapel, 5033 Rouse Dr., Virginia Beach, VA 23462.

We lost touch when we were young children, when you moved away to Virginia Beach. I am grateful you were my stepbrother for the time we had together. I so glad we got to correspond again over the years. I loved the daily political Facebook posts. Donny always made me laugh with those posts. You will be missed.
