Brian K. Donahue
MAYNARD: Brian K. Donahue, 55, a lifelong resident of Maynard, MA, died on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017 at the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, MA.

Brian was born in Marlboro, MA son of the late William J. Donahue and survived by his mother, Patricia A. (Wehkoja) Donahue of Maynard. He was raised in Maynard where he attended local schools and was a 1981 graduate of Assabet Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School in Marlboro. He also attended Fitchburg State College. Brian served in the U.S. Army during the 1980’s and was stationed in Germany until being honorably discharged. He then continued to serve in the national guard for several years thereafter. He worked most of his life in the food service industry in corporate cafeterias and for several years at Nashawtuc Country Club in Concord. Brian was a member of the Maynard Lodge of Elks.

Brian enjoyed the simple things in life and was a passionate sports fan. He looked forward to football season and especially enjoyed refereeing youth basketball and lacrosse over the years.

Besides his mother, Brian is survived by his 5 brothers, Michael of Lowell, Mark of Maynard (husband of the late Brooke (Evjy)), Kevin of Chelmsford, Patrick and his wife Jennifer of Hudson and Gary and his wife Kerrie of Gloucester. He also leaves his 6 nephews, Patrick, Bobby, Thomas, Keegan, Liam and Cooper Donahue along with many relatives and close friends.
