On Wednesday evening, May 19, 2021, God sent an Angel of Peace to call his servant to rest and to let him know that his journey on earth was over. He has finished his course, fought a good fight and it was time for him to rest.
Donald Ray Corpening was born in Winston Salem, NC on October 22, 1946 to the late Johnny and Margaret Moultry. He was the oldest of three children.
Donald matriculated in the New York City Public School system. After Donald left high school, he enlisted in the United States Army in 1964. He was honorably discharged in 1966. After returning to civilian life, he worked several jobs before applying to the New York City Police Department. He joined the NYCPD in 1972 and retired in 1993.
