Obituary

Jonathan McDonald was born in Pensacola, Fl on February 7th, 1981. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, friend, God father and best friend to his father, Barry McDonald.

Jonathan’s grandfather, Jimmy McDonald, instilled in him at a very young age a passion for farming. At 7 years old, he drove the farm truck tending to the animals and crops. His first job was selling his produce at the farmers market on the weekend with Daddy Jim and his little brother, Derek. He was a long time member of the B Bar K Riding Club where he raced horses. He graduated from Milton High School in 1999 and completed his nursing degree at Pensacola State College. He was a RN for Life Flight, the Intensive Care Unit and ER. He was deeply committed to education and taught Advanced Life Support to medical personnel. He met several life long friends at his home church, Spoken Word in Pensacola, FL.

He loved the outdoors, from fishing to hunting or just enjoying the view. He felt most at home on the water. He enjoyed boating and driving his jet ski. He was the epitome of an adrenaline junkie. He loved practicing medicine. He strongly believed in the saying “Chose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” With his need for speed and love of medicine, he pursued his dream of flying as a Life Flight Nurse for over decade. His other loves included traveling, music especially Willie Nelson and was a sports enthusiast and fan of Alabama Football - Roll Tide. He enjoyed spending time with his girlfriend Katerina, family and friends. His infectious spirit has touched the lives of countless friends, patients, families, nurses, physicians, EMTs, Paramedics and others.

Jonathan is survived by his parents, Barry and Debbie McDonald; brothers, Daniel and Derek Perkins, Raymond McDonald; sister, Jodie McDonald-Beach (David); godson and nephew, Miles Beckett Beach; several nieces and nephews; girlfriend, Katerina Marshall; best friends, Jason Chancey and Jesse Gardner. Jonathan is preceded in death by his Mother, Heather Brown; Grandparents, Jimmy and Joy McDonald, Peggy and James Brown and Bob and Jackie Teston.

Jonathan was a true friend to many - ready and willing to help in a moment’s notice. His Celebration of Life will be held at Trahan Funeral Home in Milton, FL on January 19th from 1 PM to 3 PM with funeral commencing at 3 PM. Burial will follow at Serenity Garden.

Jonathan was a friend who would help no matter what! I remember one specific time our youth group went canoeing. I ask him to be my partner because well I couldn’t swim and was scared! Jonathan did all the canoeing work while I just enjoyed the ride! Lol!! He will be missed! I have countless stories & pictures of such good times we had at Spoken Word.

Jonathon taught me ACLS for the first time in 2012. He gave me a written ‘Guide’ to help me through the algorithms. Throughout the years I’ve kept his Guide and his mentorship was incredibly meaningful to me throughout my nursing career. He impacted my personal and professional life as well as may others and will never be forgotten. -Elizabeth B
