I was so very sorry to see Mr Donmoyer’s passing in the paper. A few years ago I met Mr Donmoyer’s son and wife…not sure which son…at the HideAway in Mt Gretna. We were all sitting at the outside bar when we ntrouced ourselves. When I heard their last names, “Donmoyer”, I perked up saying, “the only Donmoyer I knew was my 6th grade teacher in Sporting Hill, in Manheim Central.” “Oh my gosh! That’s my dad!!”, was what I heard.  WOW!!! Small world!!  They showed me a picture of him…and sure enough…it was the same guy!!!  In school all us girls had a crush on him…after all he was our first ‘male’ teacher, not to mention a man who was sooooo cute!!  He always wore dark suits which complemented his blonde hair!  He was sooo ‘dreamy’ to us girls!  At lunchtime recess he’d play softball with the guys…all us girls were right there to watch him!  Such fond memories!! In looking at his age in the obit it looks like he was only 12 years older than me at the time…just starting his teaching career!!!  I’m so sorry this is so long but I just had to write a condolence to his family…he was a great teacher who made a real impact on me and my girlfriends…in more ways than one!!!  My sincerest condolences to his family.  I just know the angels in heaven are rejoicing upon his arrival!!!  He’s going to make an impact in heaven just as he did here.

We are very much saddened by Larry’s passing. As his neighbors, for the past few years, we will miss his bright and cheerful smile whenever we met.

So sorry to hear about Larry’s passing.  I worked with Larry during the second half of his career as a fellow principal, then superintendent.  Larry always focused on the goal of making Brownstown ES a better place.  I also remember him always talking about his baseball cards and grandkids, so I am glad he was able to enjoy his retirement.  I was happy to have the opportunity to see Larry again recently at Luther Acres, too.  He will be missed.  But whenever I think of Brownstown ES, I will always remember Larry.  Best wishes to Doris and their family.  From your many friends at CVSD and CVEF, Gerry Huesken

It was was my wife’s privelege to work for Larry early in her career (when she was assigned to Brownstown’s satellite Farmersville.  The process of it’s closing sent her to Leola.)  She thoroughly enjoyed her experience with Larry as her supervisor.  I too knew Larry–mostly from a distance–when I was assigned to Witmer Heights.  We offer our condolences in his passing.

Dear Donmoyer family,
Both our children, Nathan and Heather, enjoyed their time at Brownstown elementary, because of how Mr Donmoyer lead the school. Brownstown was the elementary school that had religious training(release time) and this was because Mr Donmoyer was  supportive of students walking off campus to a nearby church and learning about Jesus.
Thanks to Mr Donmoyer, children’s lives will never be the same!
Prayers for the family to feel God’s presence and comfort during this time.

Our most heartfelt sympathy during the loss of your husband! Our daughters really liked him as a principle at Brownstown Ele. School. It was always great seeing you two at Terry’s musical events over the years too!
