Donald Joseph Connolly, beloved father and grandfather.
Donald (Don) Joseph Connolly, beloved father and grandfather, passed away on Tuesday May 8, 2018 in Mount Dora, FL at age 82. A ladies’ man, foodie, fashion icon, raconteur and accomplished traveler, Don is survived by his daughter Karin, son Keith and two grandchildren Max and Liam. Born in the Bronx, he served in the Navy and lived in Connecticut for most of his life moving to Florida ten years ago, and that was enough travel for him. He loved playing the guitar and teaching his grandkids how to play chess, and once in a while even losing to them. He made a mean toast. He dressed like no one else would. He retired after two wives because he didn't feel it was fair to all the other men. He will be remembered and loved by family and friends. In lieu of flowers please donate to your local hospice or Cornerstone Hospice of Clermont. https://web.cshospice.org/
