Donnan Martin

November 12, 1932 - July 30, 2019 Kennett Square, PA | Age 86 Loving Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather and Friend.


Donnan Martin, age 86, passed away in his home in Kennett Square, PA on July 30, 2019.

Donnan was born in Jacksonville, FL and was a graduate of Andover Academy, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Delaware (MBA). Donnan led a full and interesting life. He was a Jr. Lieutenant in the Navy, worked for the duPont Company for over thirty years, and ran a successful business into his eighties!

Donnan was married to his sweetheart, Hazel, for 55 years until her death in 2010. Donnan made life-long friends during every phase of his life, often travelling for visits, hosting guests in his home, enjoying a meal, or just picking up the phone to keep in touch. And he could tell stories, oh the stories- like how, as a young man, he sang at Carnegie Hall!

Donnan was predeceased by his loving wife Hazel, and beautiful daughters Marilyn, Judy, and Nancy. Donnan is survived by his daughter Suzanna (John) of Florence, NJ, grandsons Scott (Alexandra) of Wrightstown, NJ, and Eric of Philadelphia, PA, granddaughter Charlotte of Brooklyn, NY, and great grandchildren Gabriella, Jack Donnan, and Audrey.

Special appreciation goes to the terrific group of people who provided loving care and comfort to Donnan.

  1. Dear Suzanna,

    So very sorry to read of your dad’s passing away. I was not aware that you also lost all of your sisters. I have lots of happy memories of times with both of your parents and with all of you, and especially you. My sympathy to you and your family. My prayers and love, Anna Beane
