Monday, November 28, 2016

Friday in Englewood. Donahue was struck and killed by a careless driver Friday afternoon on Interstate 25 south of Castle Rock. Donahue was struck by a commercial truck owned by U.S. Foods near Tomah Road. Noe Gamez-Ruiz has been cited in Donahue’s death. He faces charges of careless driving resulting in death, a misdemeanor, and failure to yield the right-of-way to an emergency vehicle.“Cody was extremely hard working, honorable, and genuinely kind,” his obituary reads. “He was so honest he even gave his own wife a ticket. He was always happy to lend a tool or stop what he was doing to lend a hand. He loved being a daddy and teaching his daughters to ride a bike, build a snowman, and rock climb.”Donahue was born in Grand Forks, N.D. in 1982 and had two daughters. He met his wife, Velma, while in college in North Dakota and they later moved to Colorado.“He was an exuberant kid who wore through the tires on his big wheel,” the tribute says. “He loved water skiing, four-wheelers, and snowmobiling.”As he grew older he was always the designated driver for his friends, making sure everyone got home safely. He met Velma Dusper right after graduating high school.“He was immediately head over heels,” the tribute says, “although it took him two more months to ask her out.”Cody was pursuing an engineering degree at the University of North Dakota when he and Velma got married three years later and moved to Denver. They had their first daughter shortly after he joined the Colorado State Patrol and had their second daughter three years later.Donahue was a family man who ...

Harold A. Haag, Hayward, WI - Janesville Gazette

Monday, August 22, 2016

Harold received his bachelor’s degree in education from UW-Eau Claire and his master’s degree in education from the University of Michigan. He taught biology, chemistry, and physics in Greenwood, Tomah, and Janesville before retiring in 1989. A highlight of his education career was when he was able to combine his love of teaching with his passion for nature at the Janesville Schools Outdoor Laboratory. He poured his heart into making sure every elementary-aged student learned something new about nature during their field trips to the JSOL. In 2000, Harold and Evelyn moved from Janesville to Hayward, WI, to be surrounded by the beauty of the north woods. Harold was devoted to learning, and in retirement took classes in everything from astronomy to chair caning. He enjoyed woodworking, making maple syrup, deer hunting, sheepshead, good conversation and observing nature. Together Harold and Evelyn enjoyed traveling, playing bridge, attending Big Top Chautauqua, WPR, and their daily game of cribbage.Harold will be remembered as a wise, intelligent, patient, outdoorsy and stoic grandpa by his grandchildren, Dan and Jenna Haag, and Natalie, Paul and Andy Tietz. Harold is further survived by two brothers, Robert and Gordon Haag; brother-in-law Vernon Mathison; and many nieces and nephews.A celebration of Harold’s life will be held on Friday, August 26 at 11 a.m. at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery Chapel in Spooner, WI, with Pastor Steve Ward presiding. Memorials may be made to Hayward Hospice, or the Spider Lake Volunteer Fire Department and EMTs. Online condolences can be left at www.bratley-nelsonchapels.com.Harold’s family would like to thank Dr. Rob Wolfe, Dr. Brent Kelley and the nursing staff at Hayward Hospital for their ext...
