I didn’t know Donny well, except to say he was kind, courteous, respectful, and genuine. I remember his upbeat disposition, his keen mind, and comfortable personality. What I do emphatically know was that Rod and Jenny were immensely proud of Donny, for the same reasons stated above, but also for his athletic and intellectual prowess. I mean, how many people out there in this world were kind-hearted nuclear engineers, soccer stars, and ultra marathoners all rolled into one?...few on planet earth, I dare say! Rod, Jenny, son Jake, and daughter Megan, you all should take solace in knowing you had the privilege of having this miracle of a young man around your household for up to 34 blessed years. Furthermore, you should know Donny has left a tremendous impact on others far outside of your circles; meaning he will live on far longer than anyone can know. Accordingly, we will all celebrate his life going forward, and reflect on his inspiration to the many. And you all can expect to see his smiling face again, in Heaven. That’s just the way it is. God Bless You All! With So Much Love, Dan
The Mark and Shawn Geinopolos Family left a message on April 11, 2020:
So saddened and shocked by your loss. Sending Love, thoughts and Prayers.... Donny, Memory Eternal....
Jen Beck left a message on April 11, 2020:
I am sorry for the incredible loss you are experiencing. Megan, I know how close your were with Donny and the loss of a sibling is heart wrenching. John 6:37: Jesus said, "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out." May you feel Jesus' comfort and peace in your troubles and pain.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I can begin to understand what it’s like to lose a son. But I believe all of heaven rejoiced when he arrived and made them laugh. Your list is great and so is the list of his world. Let The Lird bless and comfort you during these times because there is no replacement for your son. Love you

I had the pleasure of spending time with Donny in Madison. His wit, intelligence and easygoing nature were ever present. He has been heavy in my heart this last week and I will continue to think of him in a positive manner for the rest of my life. Although I have not met his family, from what I have learned from speaking with his friends that have, I look forward to the day that I do!

Donny, was an awesome teammate in soccer, a great coworker, the coolest friend, and an even better person. He’s been taken from us too soon and I’ll miss him greatly. My thoughts are with you Fostners and Woboril’s.
Michelle Brouchoud left a message on April 10, 2020:
My very deepest condolences. I was shocked (as I am sure you were) by this tragic news. I helped my brother, Mark West, coach Donny and the "Elm Grove Thunder" soccer team when he was in middle school and I remember such a fun and inspiring human being and great soccer player. He will be missed. My sympathy goes out to your family and his friends.

My heart and thoughts go out to Rod and Jenny at this time. While I did not have the pleasure of meeting Donny, I got to know Rod very well and I do know how tight the family was and how proud Rod was of his son. It was not only an incredible loss to his family, but a loss to everyone that could have meet and appreciated Donny in the future. A star is now missing from the sky.

No amount of words can express the sadness and pain that the entire Fostner/Minturn families are going through during this very difficult time. Our hearts ache for you and know that you are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. The love and joy a child brings us will never be forgotten. Cherish all the memories you have with Donny and the rest of your family. They will be with you forever and will always comfort you. We wish we were there to give you all big hugs. May he rest in peace. Lots of love from Colorado!
Rick & Ellie Colombo left a message on April 8, 2020:
It is so hard to find the words to express how deeply sorry we are for your loss or any that can ease the pain you are going through. But what we do know is how pleased God must be with how you nurtured and cherished the gift that was given to you. That you cared for him in such a beautiful way. It was clearly evident how deeply loved Donny was by you all. We are praying for the day when the many memories will bring more smiles than tears. Love and hugs to all of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Jill Stephens left a message on April 8, 2020:
