Donavan Edward Anderson
May 7, 2007 - Aug. 27, 2007
Donavan will be missed by all whom he has encountered. Even though his time with us was short, no one will forget his big, gummy smile, hardy laugh, the best spit bubbles and the glow of his beautiful, blue Irish eyes.
Although he didnít have time to experience life to the fullest, he was able to go on his first Harley rides with his Grandpa and Grandma Martin. Donavan was also able to make it up to Grandpa and Grandma Andersonís summer cabin.
Most of the family agreed that Great-grandpa McCabe needed a buddy to work on projects with up in Heaven. Also, Great-grandpa Anderson needed a fishing buddy.
Donavan is survived by his parents, Betsy Martin and Derrick Anderson of Waukesha; grandparents, Douglas and Sharon (Gorichs) Anderson of Milwaukee and Gary and Kay (McCabe) Martin; aunts, Holly Anderson, Madison and Molly Martin of Waukesha; uncles, Joshua and Courtney Martin of Milwaukee and John Leffler of Waukesha; and great-grandparents, Edward and Rita Gorichs of Milwaukee, Donna Anderson of Florida, Theresa (Flanagan) McCabe of Waukesha and Harriett and Allen Chancellor of Missouri. He is further survived by many great-aunts and uncles, cousins and friends of the families.
The family is asking, in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to help offset the funeral costs or perennials be sent so that a living garden can be planted at their new home.
Visitation will be held from 3:30 p.m. until the 5:30 p.m. Mass of Christian burial Tuesday, Sept. 4, at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, 2400 W. Highway 59, Waukesha.
Church and Chapel Funeral Home is serving the family. For more information, call 549-0659 or visit www.churchandchapel.com to view the online obituary, leave condolences or receive directions.
