Sad to hear of Donny passing, but so blessed to have known him. It was always a delight to pilot with him on the Connecticut River in the 80s and such a joy to reconnect at Thames Shipyard so many years later.

Dear Lorraine and Family;
Helena and I send our deepest condolences on the untimely passing of Donny.
Donny was one of the good guys of Napeague and was my first friend I met in summer of 1963.
Donny taught me how to fish, since every chance he got he was going fishing either at the creek or on The Flying Dutchman.
The water was Donny's passion in life. We all know that, that love meant the world to him, as much as his beautiful family and friends.
We will miss you Captain Donny!

Sincerely,
Mike and Helena Jahoda

I met Donny while working a construction job at the Port Jefferson ferry terminal where he was the Port Captain.
Within the first ten minutes of conversation I knew we would become friends, Donny was an old school mariner and our conversations always drifted to stories of the “could you imagine I did that with that boat” categorie .

Another thing about Don, was his humor the look in his face told you there was always a comment in the tube waiting for the right moment or situation to come out.
I spoke to Donny shortly before his passing , while I can’t print exactly what he said for censorship reasons, trust me it was hilarious.

My condolences to Mikey and the rest of the Fromm family, Donny will be missed in our maritime community by many people that you will not see at the funeral, but be assured we are all talking about him today and thinking about him.
RIP Don fair tide and following seas brother.

For me the weeks before deer season will because of the stories we would tell each other of last seasons hunt and the plans of this years trip. Capt Fromm -May The Wind Be Always At Your Back. May The Sun Shine Warm Upon Your Face;The Rains Fall Soft Upon Your Fields And Until We Meet Again, May God Hold You In The Palm Of His Hand... ..

This was NOT what we planned while we soaked. From the apple farm to every other lame brain thought we would have he will ALWAYS remain in my heart and in my soul. I don't think I need to say what a (only) friend and neighbor he has been and when needed we could always count on Donny. Will NEVER forget when I first met Donny he came over to welcome our family to the neighborhood that and a few hot dogs later the rest is history. No one will understand the great respect that comes to grow with friends and neighbors but I am not ashamed to say I LOVED THE GUY. Captain until we meet again, Sail in Peace.
