A sweeter man does not exist. If we could have picked a father in law for our son, we could not have done better. We will cherish the memories of the many garage parties. The man knew how to throw a good party. Our hearts are with you. Jeff & Sherri

I have wonderful childhood memories of growing up on Sunflower road with “Donny” (as he was called then). “Donny” lived 2 doors from me. His uncle Paul had the house in between us and we had worn a path across Uncle Paul’s backyard from going back and forth. We had so much fun playing in the woods, riding on Grandpa Eckhart’s tractor, camping out in our backyards, playing hide-and- seek in the evenings.

My thoughts and prayers go out to “Donny’s” family during this time of lose.

God Bless you Donny, Rest in Peace.
