Two new wooden rocking chairs for the Donaldson-Bannister Farm
DPT would like to thank the friends and neighbors of Dr. James (Jim) Awbrey III for the gift of the two wooden rocking chairs given in his memory. Dr. Awbrey, a long-time Dunwoody resident, opened his dental office in Dunwoody in 1972 and practiced here for 34 years. He was known as “Dr. Donald Duck” for his ability to speak like Donald Duck. Dr. Awbrey and his wife, Dunja, raised their three children in Dunwoody. He passed away this past summer after a long battle with Blood Cancer and Parkinson’s.
One of Dr. Awbrey’s passions was woodworking and building furniture. He was a MASTER woodworker, and it was for this passion that his friends and neighbors wanted him to be remembered in some way at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm across the street from his home.
A dedication ceremony was held at the farm Sunday, December 13th and attended by Dr. Awbrey’s family and friends. The chairs are located on the porch of “new” barn overlooking the pasture and welcome all to come “sit a spell” and enjoy the park.
