The Somerville News Weekly’s Special Person of the Week:Remembering David Donovan

By Frank Santangelo 

Our condolences go out to the Donovan family for the loss of David who sadly passed away this past weekend.   
David Donovan was a good friend to many of us here in Somerville as well as here at the Somerville News Weekly. 

He was a long time well known and well liked Somerville guy. Not only well liked but much loved by anyone who ever even met him for five minutes. 
He kept many of us entertained with his short very frequently recorded Facebook comical and very interesting documentaries.  
He was always the first one to tell you that you were special, that you were important and that you mattered. 
He was a Somerville High School graduate of the class of 1987. He then went on to graduate Tech School and then later went into business for himself in the home repair Industry and sold real estate as well. 
He met his wife Marisol in 2001 and they were married in 2003. David and Marisol got involved in many charitable organizations and events across the city and we’re always the first in line to to lend a helping hand to follow Somervillian in need. 
David was a great guy, a dedicated Somervillian and he will be missed by many here in Somerville!

Our hats are off to his true Somerville Spirit!
We here at the Somerville News Weekly salute you for everything that you did to make Somerville a better place.
