Donald Savino, Jr. Obituary

Donald Savino, age 86, passed away peacefully on July 6 at Bridges by Epoch Memory Care Assisted Living in Andover.

Born in Lynn he was a beloved resident of Nahant for over 80 years. He was the son of the late Donald and Maria (DeFelice) Savino. He was the husband of the late Helen (Faia) Savino with whom he shared 62 years of marriage.

He leaves behind his daughters Dawn Savino of Virginia and Sheryl Savino of Peabody and his granddaughter Alexandra Savino of Idaho; his brothers and sisters: Antoinette DiLisio and her husband Vincent of Swampscott, William “Gov” Savino and his partner Pauline Howarth of Florida, Rose LaRochelle of Florida, Richard Savino of Swampscott, James Savino and his wife Karen of Nahant, the late Mary Hanson and her husband Ronald of NH, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Donald was a graduate of Lynn English High School and Wentworth Institute of Technology and a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

Donald started working at the age of 10 alongside his father, and founder, of Donald Savino and Sons Masonry Contractors. He eventually took over the business and continued working, with his brother Jim, until his retirement at the age of 80. Donald’s passion was his work, as is evidenced by the countless homes throughout Nahant and beyond that feature his masterful craftsmanship in the art of masonry.

Donald's dedication to his craft was surpassed only by his unwavering commitment to the Marine Corps, anyone who knew him knew how proud he was of his service.

Donald had a love of horses, having owned and shown his own award winning stallion in his younger years. He truly loved these majestic animals.

Donald's true joy came from spending quality time with family and friends. He treasured moments shared with loved ones at his home in Nahant and created lasting memories that will be cherished forever. Donald also found solace and relaxation in sunny Naples, Florida, where he spent his winters soaking up the warm weather.

Donald will be remembered for his hard work, dedication, and love of family and friends. His legacy will live on through the memories he created and the lives he touched.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, July 20, at 10AM in St. John the Evangelist Church, Swampscott, followed by funeral mass at 11AM. Burial will follow in Swampscott Cemetery, Swampscott.

Donations in Donald’s name can be made to All Care Hospice at http://www.allcare.org or a charity of your choice.
