The Don Wirth Memorial Fund

Education was of utmost importance to Don. This memorial fund will serve to complete Jaxson and Addison Wirth's Florida Prepaid College Program started by their father. Please help us in honoring Don's legacy through the gift of education for his children. 

Donald C. Wirth, of Bradenton passed away Thursday, August 16, 2018 at the age of 43. He was born August 1, 1975 in Clearwater, Florida.After graduation from Largo High School, he went on to receive his CRNA degree from Florida International University. He practiced at Morton Plant, Bayfront, Manatee Memorial and most recently at Palms of Pasadena hospitals. When Don wasn’t busy helping others and saving lives, he will be forever remembered for his meticulous home projects, such as building custom furniture and mowing his lawn in diagonal lines. He also had a passion for boating, diving for lobsters, and growing flowers. You would never find Don without a drawer full of candy and a pitcher of Crystal Light. Beginning as his Big Brother over a decade ago, he was the proud mentor to a wonderful young man, Chris Lowe. He was a dedicated, selfless friend to everyone he encountered. Above all, he was a kind hearted and generous husband, father, son, and brother. He is survived by his loving wife, Jennifer Schroeppel Wirth, and their children, Jaxson Parker age 6 and Addison Harper age 3; parents, John & Marilyn Wirth; and his #1 brother, Robert Wirth. He was preceded in death by his two canine best friends, Belle and Winny. To quote Don’s favorite phrase, family and friends are invited to “Get Back” at a Memorial Service to be held Saturday at 10:30am September 1, 2018 at Bayside Community Church 15800 FL-64, Bradenton, FL 34212. His family will greet friends from 9:30-10:30am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Don’s honor to Labrador Retriever Rescue of FL or Southeastern Guide Dogs. Arrangements by Robert Toale & Sons Funeral Home @ Manasota Memorial Park.
