Donald Havenick died peacefully at home with his daughter, son-in- law, and grandson near his side.

He often said he lived 83 amazing years. Unfortunately, shortly after his 83rd birthday he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He gave a good fight!
His greatest pride and passions were his Army MOS, of building the Alaskan Communications System, traveling, riding his motorcycle, and his family.
He was gregarious and charismatic, and always had a good story…if you were willing to listen.

He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.

  1. I am so sorry for your lost. I although I never met your father, I feel like I have known him my whole life. My father, Don Munro cared so much about his boy scouts on Governors Island. Finally a few years I had the pleasure of emailing him. He would write about things he did. He was so proud of his daughter, her family, his time in Alaska, his store and so many things. I will miss him.

  2. Sending you and your family our deepest condolences, love and prayers. Hoping you find some comfort in that he is now at peace with God. ❤️

  3. Our love and hugs to Dona, Michael, and Joseph and a loving farewell to my Bro Don. You were always my favorite and only Brother Good! I love you forever.
    Richard, Nancy, and Carly Havenick
