Obituary for Donald Maurice Ennis

Donald Maurice Ennis, aka “Duck”, was born on August 6th, 1962 to Donald Jackson and Nancy Ennis, and stepson of Kenneth (Hump Do) Honie. His father, Donald Jackson, and his step father, Kenneth Honie, preceded him in death.
Donald graduated from James E. Groves. His very first job was at the News Journal passing out newspapers. He then went on to work at Getty Refinery & County Insulation before joining the US Navy ,where he earned the rank of E-4, Petty Officer 3rd Class Boiler Tech and was honorably discharged. Donald held numerous jobs before ending up at the University of Delaware.
Donald enjoyed working, cooking, watching the Dallas Cowboys, traveling, and most importantly, spending time with his family. Who can forget his BBQ and his favorite pressure cooker? His BBQs were how he gathered family and friends together.


Donald loved God with all of his heart and was never ashamed to be a witness. He has led countless people to the Lord and encouraged everyone he met. He was a faithful member at Prevailing Church International located in New Castle, Delaware, where he served as a floor lieutenant and ensuring that his man of God, Bishop Matthew C. Haskell, Jr., was protected. We cannot forget his loud “Amen” during services. Donald was a man of God who fought the good fight of faith without wavering.


Donald married the love of his life, Cristina, on November 15, 2003. Tina, as he affectionately called her was his soul mate, best friend, and confidante. Donald and Cristina blended their family in such a unique way that it was an example to others. They enjoyed 15 years of a strong marriage that was built on extreme love for God being first.

He leaves to cherish: his loving wife, Cristina
; his children, Leah Walker (Kelly), Dominique Ennis (Shaun), Frankie Rodriguez, and Elijah Ennis; his mother, Nancy Ennis; his brothers, Kim Ennis (Lillian), Donnie Jackson, Brandon Jackson (Heidi), Jason Jackson, Darrell Anderson, Bobby Anderson, Kenny Honie, and Michael Dupree
; sisters, Donna Jackson (Al), Tammy Poole(Charzell), Michelle Booker (Mahkieb)
; grandchildren, Samiyah, Ethan, and Shaun Jr.
; in-laws, Roberto “Papi” Cruz (Ivette) and Wanda Chabrier; devoted aunts and uncles, Henrietta, Butch, and Alvin; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and friends.

Known for his infectious smile and sweet, humble spirit, Donald will truly be missed by all.
