Donnie Budnovich Jr. Obituary

Donnie Budnovich Jr, 55 of Danville, was taken from us by a sudden heart attack on Tuesday, January 16, 2024 at his home. Per his wishes there will be a celebration of life at a later date.

   Donnie was born Oct. 24, 1968 to Donald and Sandria (Cable) Budnovich Sr. He attended Bismarck schools, graduating in 1986. While he worked in many fields throughout the years, he and his wife Christy have worked side by side doing flooring installation for the past several. It was by far his favorite. Donnie loved to sing and play guitar, enjoyed art, had a passion for cooking, and loved his family more than anything else. He was the life of any party and everyone’s friend.

   Donnie married Christy Padgett on May 18, 2013 after a fifteen-year courtship. The two were best friends. Donnie leaves behind his parents and his loving wife Christy, and his three children: Courtney (Matthew Crane), Zane, and Ayla. His grandchildren Charlie, Callie, and baby Calvin who will be arriving in late March, as well as his nephew Troy will greatly miss him as well.  Donnie was preceded in death by his sister Tammi Liggett, and both his maternal and paternal grandparents.
