Donald Cottingham of Virginia Beach passed away on February 14, 2022. Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel is handling arrangements.
Bill and I knew Ricky and his family through Eastern Academy days. May the peace of Christ be with Ricky’s remaining family and friends.
I met Donald at Garrison Williams in second grade. I was trying to complete a math problem and started crying. He told me not to cry and was very empathetic. I later learned that my parents knew Tina and Donald his parents. We later attended Eastern Academy together. He was fun to be around and a good comrade. Rest in peace Ricky.
