His obituary from the February 6, 2007 Times Union (Albany, New York):

Don W. Radz, of Partridge Hill Apartments in Rensselaer, a longtime resident of the Averill Park area, passed into eternal rest at home, on February 4, 2007. The son of Harold "Pappy" Radz and Pauline Cook Radz, he was born and raised in Wynantskill. He was, from his youth, an avid outdoorsman and passed his love of the outdoors on to his children and grandchildren. He also had a great love of sports, especially golf, bowling, hunting, fishing and basketball. He graduated from Siena College with a bachelor's degree, then SUNY Albany with his master's in education. Don went on to teach sixth grade science and health for 25 years in the Averill Park School District, where his dedication as a teacher touched many lives. Don was a US Navy veteran of World War II. He was a longtime member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Loudonville and had a great faith in the Lord. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Clare Leavenworth Radz; two sons, Jeffrey S. Radz and Mark P. Radz of Poestenkill; two daughters, Donna M. Radz of Schodack and Linda S. Herring (and her husband, Mike) of Plattsburg. He is also survived by seven grandsons; two granddaughters; six great-grandchildren; his sister, Dorothy Gummer; and his brother, Harold P. Radz Jr. He will be deeply missed and always remembered by those who knew him and loved him. A very special thank you to the wonderful people of Hospice for their caring and support. A funeral service will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, at 411 Loudon Road, Loudonville on February 8 at 1:00 p.m., followed by interment in the Evergreen Cemetery in Wynantskill. Donations may be made to the LDS Missionary Fund, in care of Alan Hollister, 141 Edgewood Drive, Averill Park, New York 12018, or Rensselaer County Hospice, Valley View Boulevard, Rensselaer, New York.
