Obituary for Donald R. Harmer, Sr.

March 31, 2018
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



Donald R., Sr., of Philadelphia passed away on March 31, 2018 at the age of 82. Donald is survived by his loving wife Margaret (nee Donovan) of 55 years. Donald will also be greatly missed by his three caring children; Kathleen, Patricia Rovine (David), and Donald R., Jr. (Kelly). Donald also leaves behind an impressive legacy in his four grandchildren; Olivia, Jackson, Matthew, and Jessa.

Donald was happiest when he was sitting on the dock of a bay fishing his day away with a cold beer.

Donald will be remembered for his fun loving spirit and kindness that extended not only to his family and friends but as a friend and neighbor in Cheltenham Village and as longtime member of the Cheltenham Athletic Association as President, umpire, coach, and proud father.

Donald enjoyed the simple things in life: spending time with family, the one week vacation he worked hard all year for, and watching his sports.

Relatives and friends are invited to Donald's Life Celebration Memorial service on Friday April 13th at the Dean-Geitner-Givnish Life Celebration Home (7900 Oxford Ave, 19111) from 11:30-1:00 with a Memorial Service to follow at 1:00 PM, followed by United States Army Honors. As an homage to Don, please feel free to come donning your favorite sports team attire.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in Donald's memory to the Gary Sinise Foundation: Serving Honor and Need would be greatly appreciated.
