Before we head into the deals and perfect gifts for your father this weekend, with our curated Father’s Day Gift Guide, let us spend some time in the heart of Hartsville. One of the things that makes downtown Hartsville so unique is that so many of the businesses are owned and operated by local families, so to kick off the Father’s Day celebrations we asked Trevor McDonald, local owner of De’Vane’s Fashions and father of girls, questions about being a father and Father’s Day.
What is your favorite memory with your Father?
My most favorite memory is my dad’s hard work ethic and respect for others. My father was a visionary for which he was a hard worker and helped others.
What is the best part about being a father?
I love the ability to teach. I have 3 girls and a great nephew that I’m helping to raise of which I embrace the true responsibility of loving them with a father’s love, while demonstrating true love to my loving wife Marilyn, so my children will know and see how the union of man and woman should be.
And the best present you ever received?
My best present I’ve received on Father’s is every year that God has blessed me to spend time with my girls. I’m selfish and love quality time with my family. Quality time is better than anything money can buy, but I’ll take that too. Whoohoo!
Thank you to Trevor McDonald, owner of De’Vane’s Fashions.
Seersuckergyspy owner, Roxie Gardner, has a special Father’s Day coming up this weekend with it being her daughter’s first birthday and Father’s Day all wrapped into one, so we asked a couple of questions related to the subject.
What is your favorite memory with your father?
Favorite memory with my dad is how dedicated he is to
makingme laugh! My dad is the ultimate comedian. We were beach buddies because he would take the summer off to spend time with me.
And what is the Father’s Day plan for your family?
This Father’s Day is Nova’s 1st birthday! We are baby shark partying by the pool. Adam and Nova will be showered with gifts!
Thank you Roxie Gardner owner of Seersuckergyspy.
