Obituary for Donald O. Every

Donald O. Every, 75 of Spaulding Lane, Saugerties died peacefully, his way, Wednesday, July 29th, 2020 at HealthAlliance Hospital, Broadway Campus.

He was born in Bronx, NY on October 6th, 1944, a son of the late Arthur and Elizabeth (Reden) Every.

A veteran of the US Army, he was employed in retail food service for Hannafords, Kingston, and a food vendor for several grocery stores. In his earlier years, he was a roofer.

Known as Don the Swan by his friends, Don enjoyed sports, gambling, a good poker game and was an avid Yankees and Giants fan. He enjoyed bowling and was a member of a local bowling league.

He is survived by his daughter, Danielle Every, and his grandson, Justin Tierney, both of Saugerties, and many close friends, especially Buddy Venuti of Esopus, considered by Don as a brother, and Miriam Mowell, a true friend till the end. Many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive.

In addition to his parents, predeceased by brothers, George and Raymond Every, and sister Lois Van Buren.

The family will receive friends at the Gilpatric-VanVliet Funeral Home, 339 Broadway, Ulster Park, Town of Esopus, on Sunday, August 9, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Social distancing and face coverings are required.

Funeral home occupancy is limited by NYS, we kindly ask after paying your respects, that you exit promptly so we may continue to allow more attendees to also pay their respects.
