Donovan Divine, 51, of Princess Anne, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 3, 2021 at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. He was born May 5, 1970 in Kings County, New York, a son of Daphne Fay Toomer and Michael Delon. Donovan worked in biosecurity for Cobb Vantress in Pocomoke, a subsidiary of Tyson Foods. He recently earned his CDL and was looking forward to driving a truck for Cobb. He was an active member of 3C-USA Church in Delmar where he was a team leader and a serious prayer warrior. He prayed for anyone who needed it and believed in the power of prayer with all his heart. Donovan had an adventurous spirit and was never afraid to try something new. Donovan was happy if he was outdoors biking, mountain climbing, snorkeling or skydiving. He will be remembered as a loving and loyal husband, father, son and friend to so many. In EVERY testimony he told everyone he met how blessed he was to have such a beautiful, loving and supportive wife. This was his first big testimony. Every time he talked about the love of God he mentioned how God blessed him with a wonderful wife and his 2 babies that he prayed for. Donovan’s legacy of “spread the love” will remain with family and friends. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his beloved wife, Nichole Lynn Toomer; children, Alexis Divine, Jadynn Divine, Sophia Divine, Alora Divine, Alexis Bowe, Kaiya Skinner and Donovan Toomer; sisters, Suzette Francis and Bridgette Johnson; a brother, Terry Bonds; in-laws, Doug Kidd and Nikki Brown; several nieces and nephews; and very special friends who always had his back, Karen and Jumi Mohammadioun.
