On July 2, 2012, Donald Zuelich passed away from a sudden virus which damaged his heart. He was a beloved husband, father, grandpa, brother and friend. Don loved many things in life – crabbing to the skies of Montana. To all of his friends, I’m sorry that he left you so fast, but that’s the way he was.

He is survived by his wife Gerri, daughters Darlene Myers, Tina Longhorn, Tami Grisman, seven grandchildren, brother Allyn Zuelich, and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of Donnie’s life will come later.

    We just can’t believe he is gone from our lives.

    He was the best brother-in-law, always ready to help out whenever he could. Also, he was a great razor clam digger and we had many chances to see him in action at the beach. We loved you and we will miss you..

    Your favorite sister-in-law

    Gerri, and daughters, I want you to know how special all of you have been to me through the years. Donny was such a great person and always so thoughtful with helping someone in need. So many times all of you have lent a helping hand. I know I can never repay his many kindnesses. Gone too soon, but never, ever, forgotten. He is someone who will remain in all our hearts forever. God Bless you all.

    Donnie, Allen and Marvin were childhood friends and schoolmates of mine in National years ago. We would play games, shoot marbles, and hide and seek together. I remember one day we were playing and I think Donnie shot Allen with a bebe gun and hit his eye if I remember. Allen was climbing a tree across the ally when it happened! I also remember I saw my first oldtime phonograph record player at there house. I have fond memories of the boys and never forgot how nice Donnie was. So sorry for your loss!

I remember every moment i spent with him even when he was trying to give some of his chew or threatening to cut off my rat tail hair cut. You will always in our thaughts.Tell Oscar hello for my brother and I.
