Life Legacy:
Michael Dayton Donohue was born on January 9, 1959 and passed away suddenly on Saturday, August 29, 2015. Michael was the youngest of five children and was raised with his siblings on Mercer Island. He was deeply in love with his wife, Tunde and very proud of his amazing sons, Aaron and Joe. Michael was a loyal friend, a wonderful husband, a devoted brother and a great cousin to the many in the Donohue clan. He loved Lake Washington, the high desert of Central Oregon, and the many years he spent on the ocean sailing. Michael never turned down the opportunity to spend time with friends and family. Michael was predeceased by his parents, Dennis and Gail Donohue. He is survived by his wife, Tunde Molnar, his children, Aaron and Joe Donohue and his siblings Laura (Vic) Miller, Annie Donohue, Patrick (Patti) Donohue and Shannon Donohue. Uncle Mike will be missed by his nieces and nephews Jessica Granderson, Jennifer (Gary) Hill, Sean Miller, Kayla Hyde and Stephen Donohue and his great niece and nephew, Lexi and Cooper Hill.

"Mike was one of my first friends on Mercer Island. He initiated me into the PNW lifestyle by inviting me to sail from West Vancouver to Seattle on the family sailboat. I'll never forget that amazing experience! Mike was a treasured childhood friend and I'm deeply saddened by his tragic passing."
- Joe Costello

"What a joy to have met Michael and to see the happiness he brought to you, Tunde! May his spirit sustain you forever. Warmly, Mike"
- Mike Stewart

" I rode with Mike on Mercer Island. I rode a tall bay pony called Kim. I remember Mike and Cricket. I liked Mike because there were so few boys riding at the ring. He would come up there with Shannon who kept and eye on him from her beautiful jumping pony Sprite. I remember there was one other boy on a pony the same age as Mike and they had each other to talk to as all us girls gabbed about everything. Mike was part of a special time in my life, a time I thought for years as the best part of my life. I would of loved to hear what he had remembered from that time. I never saw Mike after that time but it does not surprise me he loved his wife and kids so much. He was a gentle boy with animals so he would surely be a wonderful family man. I am so sorry for your loss and pray your memories comfort you. Sincerely, Sue Owings "
