January 16, 1958 — October 19, 2020

Donnie Joe Pool, 62, of Overton, Nebraska passed away unexpectedly on Monday, October 19, 2020 at his home.

Donnie Joe was born January 16, 1958, at Kearney, Nebraska to Donnie and Delores (Warta) Pool. Donnie received his education from Overton Public Schools, graduating from Overton High School with the class of 1976. Following graduation, Donnie started working for System Buildings in Lexington. He then spent the next thirty plus years working for Overton Sand and Gravel.

Donnie was united in marriage to Cheryl Lynn Carlson on May 21, 1983 in Overton. The couple was blessed with one son, Christopher. They made their home south of Overton. Their marriage would later end in divorce.

He was very artistic and was a talented drawer. He never would admit it, but Donnie loved animals, especially his dogs, Missy and Diego. Donnie was an avid reader and faithful listener to KRVN. He had a dry sense of humor and loved his cold beer. In his younger years, he enjoyed nice cars.
