Obituary

Donald D. Cheever
Delton

Donald Dean Cheever of Delton passed away on January 31, 2020 after a long illness. He was ninety two years young. Donald was born on June 23, 1927 in Somerset Township and later moved to the Milan area where he spent most of his life. He served as a volunteer firefighter for the small town of Whittaker and also worked for Vernia gas station until he started his lifelong job in nursing at the Ypsilanti State Hospital where he dedicated thirty three years of his life retiring in 1987 as a barber. He gave many haircuts to family and friends over the years. In his younger days, he loved making annual trips up north to go smelt dipping, as well as annual trips to Alpena and Baldwin for deer hunting. He took his beloved Springer Spaniel, “Tubby” along to hunt small game like rabbit, squirrel, and pheasant. He enjoyed gardening and tending to the flower gardens. He preserved his crop by making jams, jellies, or pickles, and canning his precious tomatoes or making homemade ketchup. This created his love for cooking. He would read and search for new recipes to snip out and try. Don loved his Detroit Tigers and enjoyed sitting on his front porch smoking and listening to the game. He spent many a day at the Milan Moose Lodge, drinking his favorite PBR beer, watching the game on TV, and hanging out with lifelong friends. It wasn’t until 1996 when his marriage of thirty nine years dissolved and illness brought him to Delton to live with his daughter, Pam. The last of seven siblings he is preceded in death by his parents: Roy and Mattie (Small) Cheever; brothers: Roy and Orlo Cheever; sister: Margarie, Merrilla, Annabel, Corah; and an infant son: Michael James. Surviving Mr. Cheever are son: Ronald (Donna) Cheever; daughters: Judy (Cal) Hallada and Pamela Howard; grandchildren: Rebecca, Joshua, Lonald, Chelsea, Cortni, Belinda and Jacquie; twelve great grandchildren; eight great great grandchildren; several cousins, nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved dearly. Donald’s family will receive friends on Saturday, February 15, 2020, 2:00 to 3:00 PM at the Williams-Gores Funeral Home where his memorial service will be conducted at 3:00 PM.
