ROBERT DONAHUE
Obituary

Robert Michael Donahue, 88

Law partner, recreational athlete and ‘great wit full of strong opinions’

Robert Michael Donahue passed peacefully at his home in St. George, Staten Island, N.Y., on Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2016; he was 88.

Born in Brooklyn in 1928, Bob attended Bishop Laughlin High School and later graduated from Manhattan College. After college, Bob served in the Korean War and took advantage of the G.I. Bill to graduate from Brooklyn Law School in 1956.Along with Joe Holzka and Dick Kuhn, he formed Holzka, Donahue and Kuhn, a St. George-based law firm; they were later to add Joan Nerlino-Caddell as a partner to their firm.

Bob practiced law on Staten Island for over 45 years and was an avid supporter of the Noble Maritime Collection and Greenbelt Conservancy and other various civic organizations on Staten Island.

As a resident of West Brighton, Bob and his wife, Bernadette, raised five children, Maura, Robert, Claire, Elizabeth and Neil. In December 2014, Bob became a proud grandfather to his grandson, Marcus. In 1996, five years after the sudden passing of Bernadette, Bob found love again with Dorothy Myhre and is survived by her as well as three stepsons, Leif, Erik and Karl, and six step grandchildren.

He is also survived by his older sister, Alice Callahan, and younger sister, Margaret Reydel, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

A fitness pioneer, Bob gave up smoking and started running after a life-threatening cardiac event in his early 40. In the late 1960s, it was such an uncommon sight to see someone jogging in Clove Lakes Park that he was routinely stopped by strangers and police asking him, “Why are you running, is anything wrong?” In 1978, in honor of successfully making it to age 50, he rode from New York City to Montauk, N.Y., in one day. He would repeat this feat numerous times throughout his life as well as undertake a number of bicycle trips in Europe.

In addition to biking, Bob enjoyed sailing, swimming, skiing, cooking and telling stories. Though a stickler for accurate details in his law practice, Bob never let facts get in the way of telling a good story. Always a great wit and brimming with strong opinions, he spent his later years a devoted fan of Rachel Maddow.

Bob will be missed by family and friends. Services will be held at the Harmon Funeral Home on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 7 to 9 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 2, from 3 to 5 p.m.
