Obituary for Donald E. Sulzer

Donald Edward Sulzer, age 83, of Downers Grove, passed quietly on February 24 after an exhausting fight with illness. He joins in peace his parents, Anna and Charles and his siblings: Edward, Evelyn, Florence, Laverne, Harry, Raymond, Norbert, Robert and Charlie, and his "brother at heart," Ken.

Don lived a life of quiet dignity and service, distinguished by 38 years of employment with IC Industries and 20 years as President of the Mistwood Homeowners' Association. Don was, however, most defined by his singular devotion to his family: his wife of 61 plus years, Jo, and their children: Glenn (Laura), Mark (Susan), Leigh (Miles), and Kevin (Amy). The loss of his counsel, easy laugh, and gentle presence will be acutely felt by his grandchildren (Stephanie (Kevin), Brittany, Jonathan, Ben, Dylan, McKenzie, Lauren, Cameron, and Delaney), as well as by an extensive network of cousins, nieces and nephews and innumerable friends who shared his passion for golf and life.

Visitation will be held on Friday, March 1, from 3-9 p.m., at Knollcrest Funeral Home, 1500 S. Meyers Rd., Lombard, IL, 60148. A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, March 2, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Mary of Gostyn, 445 Prairie Ave, Downers Grove, IL, 60515.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Lungevity.
