Daniel “Danny” W. Donovan, 63, of Scarborough, died at his residential care home, on May 28, 2018, where he had many friends and was loved by the staff. 

He was born on April 18, 1955 in Biddeford, the son of John and Evelyn (Hilton) Donovan. 

One of Danny’s favorite activities included viewing the many images and stories through his mechanical view master. Going out for coffee with his family and friends were a highlight in his busy days. Danny enjoyed participating in the Special Olympics; especially the 2000 Toronto games. He was quite the traveler; he enthusiastically looked forward to his trips to Disney and going to Sea World. For many years, Danny went to Tall Pines campground and He could never get enough of sunny beach days!  

Danny was very proud of his job with Goodwill Industries. He looked forward to seeing his friends and the joy of doing a “good days work.” Danny was always included in the holiday celebrations with his family and his bright smile and happy personality brightened everyone’s day! 

Danny was loved, nurtured and cared for by both his family as well as his support staff while living in residential care homes. Danny is now reunited with his beloved parents and his three brothers, Dudley, Joel and Sean. We believe he has found “his voice” and is celebrating the beauty all around Heaven. 

Danny is lovingly survived by his brothers, John B. (Jack) Donovan IV and his wife Deborah (Debbie) of Kennebunk; Kim M. Donovan and wife Gale of Sanford; Timothy P. Donovan of Sanford; and George Donovan of Alfred; and his sister, Susan Donovan of Lyman; five nephews, five nieces and seven great nephews and four great nieces; and many cousins.
