I remember spending lots of time at your house when we were younger. Canton was our youth and we had some great times. We were good catholic boys., most of the time. RIP my childhood friend. You will be fondly remembered.

I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. The Radtke's lived across the street from my family (the Bowlings) when we were growing up. I especially remember Pat, who is closer to my age. We had 5 kids in my family. I remember there were a lot of kids in the Radtke household. We had lots of fun back in the day. Again, I am very sorry for your loss. May Donald rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family of Donald Radtke,. I remember when we would hang out at Canton Rec Center with a bunch of us who lived in Highland town,. We would come to Canton , because we were all friends from junior high school. Your sister Donna would also join us.. It's been so long ago. You were so crazy and funny, you always had a way of making someone laugh if they were down, brighten someone's day and put sunshine in their eyes!! You will be missed!!! Fly High to the Rainbows Sky!!!! May your family find comfort, peace and Love through this difficult Time!!!!!

My deepest condolence goes out to your family. I know you will dearly be missed. Donald, you had a very special place in my life as we were growing up. I will always remember all the times that we spent together in Canton. Either on the corner of Elliott and Baylis, your garage, Ms. Muth's steps and of course the Coop. We were a small group of special friends that were always together. It was a time in our lives when we were all learning about growing up and discovering the world all at the same time. Some of the best times of my life. Thanks for playing a very special part in it.
Rest in peace my dear friend, knowing you will be missed.

Donald truly should’ve been a comedian he would make me laugh all the time . Sometimes when we would ride around in the car ,he would see something on the street whether it be a chair ,person, or a bus whatever he would make some funny comment and I just couldn’t stop laughing with him . That and many more things I will miss about my brother.
