Condolences to Del Donahoo

OMW's thoughts and condolences go out to WKYC/3 "Del's Folks" mainstay Del Donahoo.

The Cleveland NBC affiliate reports that Donahoo's wife, Martha, passed away Tuesday evening after a long illness. The couple met in college in Iowa in the 1940's, and had been together ever since.

Martha Donahoo was 85...

I am so sorry to hear of Martha's passing. I watched Tom and Del every morning as a kid, and I felt like I knew Martha. Del talked about her so much.

I too would like to pass along my condolences to the Donahoo family. Tom and Del were the first faces I saw every morning for so many years on WKYC.

Tom and Del were probably the best programming on local Television in the Morning also. They were friendly and inviting and it was not so serious. Del did the news and Tom did the weather. It really was a down home show. Too bad it was cancelled. The morning news on all the local channels are not the same as the Today in Cleveland show.

This makes me very sad. Now days when a marriage outlasts the milk it's unusual, to have a couple stay together this long is amazing and shows the power of selflessness and love.
