The most beautiful memorial service I have ever attended. What a testament to the way Donny lived his life. He will be dearly missed, but what a legacy he has left behind. Rest in peace, Donny. To a life well lived!

Donny was always part of the Wyss family growing up and continued his friendship with our family to the day of his departure. So many great memories: pole vaulting, tube jumping, tree and barn forts, riding bikes in the east barn, swinging on the ropes and running into Carl in the south barn, camping out, getting lost in a cave with he and Jeff Strack (the last time any of us went splunkering) father son campouts (Donny invited me probably 30 years ago), cleaning three kings (well the cleaning was not fun), spring break trips to Florida, hanging with Carl at Jerry Guise house (hambone hambone), the quadraphonic stereo and preparation in the black ford van, photographing and videoing our wedding, hockey games at the byou, swimming in the winters pool, hiding from Wayne, getting caught in mischievous activities by Glen Paxton, pulling our pants up like George Werling, football games at Harris' and Hullingers, blackberry picking in the woods, riding our bikes to Poe to get orange peanut candy, the ford falcon, the rusty Toyota truck, getting Marilyn to breathe again, mud volleyball and so many other memories. God has taken you earlier than we would have preferred, however we were afforded much joy from your presence and are thankful that these memories will remain with me and so many others forever.

One of the nicest , generous , thoughtful, and understanding FRIENDS that I had the pleasure of knowing. I will miss you deeply "LIL BUDDY " . When I buy a scratch off ticket I will probably get water in my eyes because it will bring back memories of you. Gone too soon my friend.
