Donald Morse Savery, Jr. 68 passed away peacefully after an illness at St. Luke’s Hospital Palliative Care on January 30, 2020 surrounded by his loved ones. He was born and raised in Marion and was the son of the late Donald M. Savery, Sr. and Florence J. Savery.
He attended Old Rochester Regional High School and was a naturally talented musician playing with various groups up and down the East coast including Fwd.Axis, Me and the Boys, Bijou McCue and the Matinees and the Otis Campbell Band. He recently retired from a long career as a pipe technician with Piping Systems in Assonet, Ma.
Donnie was loved by everyone due to his charisma and upbeat personality. We will all remember his sense of humor and how he could always make us laugh. He had an amazing way with animals. He loved them and they loved him back. Especially birds! He dearly loved trips to the Vineyard with his children and their mom Karen and canoeing down the river they lived on in Dartmouth. “Every year he would go on his Memorial Day weekend canoe trip with his best friends”. He and his children also went on many a bike ride.
He leaves his two children, Leigh M. Savery and Lauren M. Savery, both of Dartmouth. He also leaves his sister, Gloria Bassett and her husband Cliff of Yarmouth and his brother Larry Savery and his wife Betty of Marion and many loving nieces and nephews and an incredible number of friends!
Burial will be private with a memorial gathering at a later date.
Arrangements are placed in the care of Perry Funeral Home 111 Dartmouth St. New Bedford, MA 02740. Please see our website: www.perryfuneral.com for condolences.
