      Hello Swimm,

      Flop: You can as well raise the flop donk, although shouldn't be that wrong if you just Call since it seems that he has some kind of strong hand.
      Turn: Do you expect to have fold equity here? While we have a pretty strong hand my idea would likely just bet for building up the pot and that's all I guess. Even at some spots I like to Check behind when I am somewhat inclined to think that he is capable of Check/Raising here.
      River: Not many worse hands will Call you here anyways, rather just skip the thin value and Check behind. Any Jx gives a straight, any 6x gives a straight and so on. A lot of 2pairs are possible.

      Best regards.
