Donald Cornelius Schlotter, Jr.

On the afternoon of July 12, 2023, Donald Cornelius Schlotter, Jr. passed away peacefully in Irvine, CA with his son, Eric and daughter-in-law, Liana by his side. He was 83 years old.

Donald was born on October 11, 1939 in Bethlehem, PA to Donald C. Schlotter and Grace V. Schlotter, and lived most of his life in Riverside and Palm Springs, CA.  He graduated from Claremont Men’s College in 1961, and worked in corporate insurance underwriting until his retirement.

An avid golfer and distance runner, Donald ran in many races but his greatest achievement was to run in the Boston Marathon.  He loved competing in golf and travelled with his golf buddies, playing in tournaments around the country.  His other pastimes were reading, playing bridge, and walking his beloved dog, ZoZo.

Donald loved the times he spent with his grandchildren. He had talks with Donovan about stocks and gave him financial advice, and when Jacob had a soccer match, Donald would be there. He took Emily to “Mr. Bean” movies because he loved them and thought she would too. He looked forward to family dinners at Eric and Liana’s, watching golf or football together.

Donald was preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by his son, Eric Cornelius Schlotter and daughter-in-law, Liana Schlotter, his brother, Daniel Schlotter, and sister, Gretchen Fisher, his grandchildren Donovan Coombs, Emily Grace Schlotter and Jacob Anthony Schlotter, his niece, Jennifer Barden, and nephews Andrew Fisher, Michael Schlotter, and Jeffrey Schlotter.

Memorial services are to be announced.
