At age 14, his mother moved him to the San Fernando Valley, CA. He attended Cleveland High School. He fathered two sons, Marcus Eric, now eight, and Damion Terrell, three. In his adult years, he worked a family construction business.

On July 25, 1998, while changing a tire on the 5 Freeway, he was shot in the back twice. This act devastated everyone that knew Donterrell. His family can’t recover this loss.
