Sandy Cook

Norman Hickey pointed out that we’d missed Sandy Cook’s passing in 2018.

After a bit of searching, here’s the obit.

Michael P. Donahue, 67, born in Wilmington, passed away peacefully on Friday June 17, 2022.

He lived fiercely, loved wholeheartedly, and laughed generously.

Mike attended the University of Delaware and was a lover and expert of everything technology related. He worked as a Senior Vice President of Technical Services (and self-proclaimed BS Artist) at Ameristar Technologies, as a Vice President at Versalign, Inc, and Technology Consultant at Delaware Ophthalmology Consultants. In the meantime, Mike wasted no moments on this earth and filled each of them with an adventure. Mike was a decorated dirt bike racer, fearless scuba diver and skier, aspiring BBQ pit master, amateur pyrotechnician, and avid collector of cameras, guitars, baseball cards, vinyl records, cars and pretty much anything he could fit into the garage. Above all, Mike loved his family and friends who never had to guess what was on his mind, particularly when it came to politics. He was brave and tenacious and never backed down from being the best husband, father, uncle, and the kindest friend.

Mike is survived by his wife of 26 years, Ephimia Coumanakos who was his adventure partner and closest ally; his daughter Alexandra who was and continues to be his unending source of pride and deepest love; his brother James Donahue (DiAnn), his sisters Penny White, Mary Bright, Kathleen Donahue (Rich Thompson), sister-in-law Konstantina Koumanakou, his nieces and nephews, Stephen Demanovich (Amy), Michael Bright, Shannon Cox (Ben), Brien Donahue (Amanda), and wonderful great-nephews and nieces.

Family and friends are invited to visit on Friday, June 24 from 10:00 – 10:50 am at St. Joseph’s on the Brandywine. A mass of Christian burial will follow at 11:00 am.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Mike may be made in support of Dr. Adam Luginbuhl’s research at Jefferson. Memorial gifts can be mailed to: Jefferson, Office of Institutional Advancement, Department 825434, P.O. Box 71331, Philadelphia,PA19176-1331.

Hello fellow Mount Pleasant Senior High School Class of 1973 classmates. Our 50th year since graduation is coming in 2023. It is not too early to start planning for a gala event to celebrate that milestone. To assist in planning for that event I am asking that you take the time to answer the following survey.

Obituary wasn’t in the local paper

On May 10, 2022, Randall (Randy) T. Richter, age 66, passed away peacefully at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, surrounded by his family.

Starting in 1973, Randy attended the University of Delaware where he met Kim, his wife of 43 years, and his love for singing and playing guitar became apparent after joining the musical group “Friends.” Randy later graduated from Penn State University before his 40-year-long career in landscape architecture and land planning.
