Michael J. "Mick" Donovan of Warminster, Pennsylvania died Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at his home. He was 62 years old. Mick was born December 25, 1954, the son of the late Joseph W. Donovan and the late Ruth Donovan (nee - Didriksen). He is the beloved husband of Susanne Donovan (nee - Biehl); father of Ryan Donovan and his wife Erica, and Kerri Petzar and her husband Ryan; grandfather of Joseph R. Donovan; brother of Mark Donovan and his wife Jennifer, and Gregg Donovan and his wife Maureen.

Mick was born in Philadelphia and was raised and educated in the Willow Grove/Hatboro area of Montgomery County. He was a graduate of Upper Moreland High School and of St. Joseph’s University. During his working career he was a self-employed contractor working in the home improvement field. He had many loyal customers and rarely had to work outside of a 2 mile radius of his home. Mick was a member of the Willow Grove Moose Lodge 1101, and was an avid Philadelphia Phillies fan. He had a whole room in his house dedicated to Phillies memorabilia.

Mick and Sue were married on September 10, 1977 and were just about to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Mick loved his family and many happy years were spent raising Ryan and Kerri and watching them play sports. He was very close with his daughter-in-law Erica and his son-in-law Ryan and was thrilled when they joined the family. His greatest joy was making his 1-year old grandson Joseph laugh by making funny sounds.
