Obituary for Lawrence 'Larry' Anthony Donahue

Lawrence Anthony “Larry” Donahue – 88 yrs old

Born 12/22/1930 – Deceased 1/2/2019
Survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Dorothy “Dabby” Donahue (nee Burkhardt), Daughter Laurie Donahue Wilburn, Son John Paul Donahue; survived by 2 grandchildren Elizabeth Wilburn and Colin Wilburn; his sister Jane Donahue Gallen; sister-in law Eileen Donahue (nee Duffy); sisters-in-law Pauline Donovan, Amey Richards (Bruce); one brother-in-law Adam Burkhardt (Sandy). Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews.

Larry attended Abington High School, and served in the Korean War as a corporal in the United States Marine Corps and received a purple heart. His civilian career was as an electrician – his last working years as a union electrician for Local 98 IBEW/Philadelphia. He put up a valiant and courageous fight against several health issues for over 25 years, all the while playing his beloved golf – the last 3 yrs while on oxygen. He was a wonderful loving husband/father/grandfather; a true family man and a loyal friend to many. His home of 48 years was filled with love, living and laughter and that is where we plan to gather after his mass.
