Donny S. Van Gundy of Balsam Lake died Oct. 18, 2008, at the St. Croix Regional Medical Center. He was 28.
Donny was born on July 27, 1980 in St. Croix Falls to Donny G. Van Gundy and Marilyn (Fox) Van Gundy.
Donny grew up in Balsam Lake where he graduated from Unity High School in 1998. Soon after graduating Donny started working with his step-father at Direct Forest Products in the hardwood lumber industry. He enjoyed working in the hardwood industry and was currently employed at Balsam Mill Works in New Richmond.
On the weekends Donny was able to fulfill his true passion and do what he really loved. That passion was singing in a rock band and Donny was the lead singer of Maximum Dosage a local rock band. In his free time he enjoyed playing poker, volleyball, softball, singing, shooting pool, building things and watching horror movies.
