Donny Glenn Bristoe

February 3, 1995 ~ July 25, 2017 (age 22)
On July 25th, 2017, Donald Glenn Bristoe's spirit flew high above ours. In his 22 short years, Donny influenced numerous people with his compassionate and loving nature. He was a fun loving, adventurous, young man who was passionate about music, especially guitar. His greatest inspiration was the love of his life, Sammy Prenzel. He loved hitting golf balls and causing epic explosions. Donny graduated from Edgewood High School, where he inspired both teachers and students through his role as a teacher's aide. In addition, he was a cherished member of the North Central Church of Christ in Bloomington.

He was the son of Bobby Bristoe of Bloomington and Donna Rainey and step-father Bill Rainey, of Belleville, IL. He was the brother with the best bear hugs of Zachary Bristoe and Heather Howard (Jason) all of Bloomington. He will be dearly missed by his beloved fiancé, Samantha Prenzel of Springville. The cherished grandson of Dorothy and Gus Kassaros of O'Fallon, IL and Ellen Bristoe of Bloomington. He was loved by many aunts, uncles, great-aunts and great-uncles, cousins and will be remembered by many other relatives and several devoted friends.

He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Morris Bristoe; his best friend and cousin, Jeremiah Bristoe all of Bloomington; and his great-grandparents Ted and Opal Miller of Cahokia, IL.
His funeral service will be Sunday, July 30, 2017, at 4:00pm at North Central Church of Christ, 2121 N. Dunn St. Bloomington with his family receiving visitors from 2:00pm-4:00pm in the church sanctuary. Chandler Funeral Home of Ellettsville is handling Donny's funeral arrangements.
