Wyatt Donahue


David Wyatt Donahue passed away, peacefully, in Austin, Texas on Friday, April 13, 2021 at the age of 27. Born in Memphis, Tennessee on June 2, 1993, Wyatt became a Texan when his family moved to Fort Worth in 1996. After attending Trinity Valley School for 13 years, he studied at The University of Mississippi, where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree of Business Administration in 2016.


He immediately began his Risk Management career at Brown and Riding Insurance Services Inc. and then joined Risk Placement Services (RPS) as a Broker in 2019, and had advanced to the position of Area Assistant Vice President.


Wyatt loved life, his friends, family, travel, football, soccer, Ole Miss, Texas, the MAVs, skiing, and fishing. He expressed his beliefs and opinions- always original- with eloquence and passion. He always defended the underdog. Given the importance Wyatt always attributed to the needy in our community and the health of his dearest friends, memorial donations may be made to the two organizations nearest and dearest to his heart. Rutledge Cancer Foundation is honored to be chosen as one of those organizations.
