This is a sad story, but if you’re gonna go, you might as well leave this world doing what you love! For me, it’s surfing, for a 62 year old man near Grand Rapids Michigan, it was bowling. He was a member of the same bowling league for more than 25 years. On this night, he bowled 12 strikes in a row to bowl a perfect 300! He then turned around, started shaking hands of his team mates and then collapsed.
RAVENNA, Mich. (WZZM) – Teammates in his bowling league think after rolling a perfect 300 game Don Doane’s heart just gave out.
“You get nervous shooting a 300,” says teammate Todd Place. “The pressure keeps building,” says bowling alley owner Jim Nutt.
Minutes after achieving the life long goal of a perfect game the 62 year old bowler collapsed and died at Ravenna Bowl in Ravenna. “Don just collapsed,” says alley owner Nutt. ” At first we thought he just fainted.” “Then when I rolled him over I realized it wasn’t good,” says teammate Place.
