The family wishes to express their gratitude for the wonderful care that he received while there and at New Britain General Hospital as well. Donald enjoyed a passion for family and friends as well as being an avid fisherman and sports fan. He could fish from dawn til’ dusk, whether in the rivers, ocean or at his brothers’ camp in the Rangeley Lakes area of Maine. He always loved the great outdoors. If he wasn’t fishing you could find him cooking on the grill for his many friends and family. A close second to his love of fishing was his love of sports enjoying UConn Huskies, the Boston Celtics, New York Giants and his beloved New York Yankees. Donald had a great laugh and loved to tell a great story. He always had a smile for everyone. Donald was predeceased by his sister Jacqueline Chamberland of New Britain, CT. He is survived by his sisters Florine Corriveau of Plainville, CT and her significant other Ernie Thibodeau, Doris Chasse and her husband Richard of Southington, CT and his brother Michael and his wife Ginger of Pownal, ME, as well as a large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, numerous nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
