Donavan Maxwell Goodson-Williams, 25, of Indianapolis passed away Sunday, October 25, 2020 from injuries sustained in a tragic car accident that also took the life of his girlfriend, Jalee, mother of his 16-month old son Jay'von.
Donavan was a loving son and best friend to his mother, Marisa Goodson and his father, Keenan Williams.
Donavan touched many lives in his lifetime. He did not make friends, he made family. If he loved you, then you became his brother or his sister and there wasn't anything he wouldn't do for his friends. Donavan was the life of the party and enjoyed dancing and bringing joy and laughter to everyone around him. He had a smile that would light up any room.
Donavan was also an avid sports fan and was looking forward to getting both of his son's into sports. Jayden adored his daddy and loved playing football in the front yard with him.
Donavan leaves a big hole in everyone’s heart who loved him. To say he will be missed is an understatement!
