It is with great sadness that we just learned of Don's death. He and I had been close boyhood friends many years ago in Stevens Point. We attended St. Stephen's elementary school there, played basketball together, and enjoyed many good times of youth. We lost touch after a while, but renewed acquaintances about 10 years ago. Shirley and I will miss him, and we send our condolences to Pat and the Ryskoski family. Have a good journey, Doniola!

Just heard about this - he was a great coach and neighbor growing up on Oakleaf Drive. Many great memories of running/racing in the street as well as on his track teams at SW. Great inspiration for sports and life in general.

Don Ryskoski was one of my most memorable and favorite coaches of all times. "Effort is the key to success. Without effort, you will not have success." We had an amazing volleyball team under Coach Don. He was truely inspirational and will always... always be remembered for his leadership, drive and ultimate desire to lead the development and success of everyone on our team. So much for everyone to be proud of- the great coach and person that he was and will always be remembered for. Best wishes to his family.

Tammy and Family: I have known your amazing father and family since we were little twerpts in second grade. He was a kind man with a gentle soul. He touched the lives of so many people. He loved his family so much and was so proud of his kids and the love of his life (Pat). I remember bumping into him and Pat later in life, and saying, "How's it going Mr. Ryskoski? and he would say, "Fine, just call me "Don"." Tammy, you definitely were "the apple of his eyes". Thank you for being my friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this difficult time. Don definitely will be missed by all. He was a great man.

I am so sorry for your loss. He was one of the best teachers I ever had and really cared about each of his students. I feel lucky to have known him.
