Allthough Scheepers dedicated his life to other interests like, being part of the Ennerdale’s , Berea FC management team. Before Berea FC, Donny owned a club by the name of “Spice Boys FC”. He also dabbled, in former years as a DJ. Committed to his family life and a staunch Christian, he believed in doing something 100% – or not at all.
However, Donny’s passion in the workplace, was with wheels and tyres, and to have found his match in this field would not have been easy. His untimely death coincided with that of movie actor Paul Walker, of “The fast and the furious” fame. Having experienced the humorous side of Donny Scheepers in the past, His last words before his passing, could well have been “Sorry guys, Paul Walker is going to need a Good speed balancing and alignment technician in heaven” Trust me… He was one of the best!
To a warrior who ran the race with patience,who fought the good fight and finished strong. R.I.P Donny Scheepers
