Donavan Michael Herr, Concrete finisher, avid body builder, loving father, very generous

By on November 2, 2016

Donavan Michael Herr, 25, of Brownstown, passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 29, 2016.

He was the son of Stephannie Ernest, Mount Joy, and Albert Herr Jr. of Akron.

He is survived by a son: Lucas Herr, Ephrata; a sister: Lyndsey Herr, Mount Joy; and a niece: Alexis Herr, Mount Joy.

Donavan was a concrete finisher by trade. Donavan was an avid body builder and swore one day he’d be as big as his grandfather. He was known for saying “Welcome to the gun show!” He always had an ear to lend if you needed it. He was always in tune with what others needed, and would give the shirt off his back, even if he didn’t have one. He adored his son immensely; they were the best gaming buddies ever. His charismatic personality seemed to draw in everybody, and his sense of humor kept you laughing. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.
