Remembering Don Schwandt

Don Schwandt

The AOI family joins the Schwandt family as they mourn the loss and celebrate the life of husband, father, and grandfather, Don, as a result of Parkinson’s disease, at the age of 83. As one expects when encountering a Schwandt, he was a unique, intelligent, and kind person, with a great sense of humor. Unlike other Schwandts, he was also very quiet, and a man of few words. Many of the AOI staff and students were fortunate to have known him.  He will be missed.

The funeral will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, March 8th 2017 at Zion Lutheran Church in Appleton, Wisconsin.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made to the Donald Schwandt Memorial Fund at 510 E. Marquette, Appleton, Wisc. 54911
