Obituary of Donald J. Engelhart

Please share a memory of Donald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

On Sunday, September 18, 2022, Donald J. Engelhart, loving husband and devoted father of three children, passed away at the age of 69.

Don was born on August 2, 1953 to Fred and Marion (Griesmer) Engelhart.  Don lived most of his life on Long Island (Malverne, Huntington and Commack) before relocating to Wake Forest, NC in 2020.   Don received his undergraduate degree from St. John’s University in 1975, and he worked in the insurance industry until his retirement in 2017.  

On April 9, 1983, Don married Lorraine McGinn. They raised three children, Michael, Brian, and Laura.

Don’s passion and focus were his family and helping those in need.  He was very involved in his church, Central Presbyterian in Huntington, N.Y, where he served as Elder, Trustee and President of the Trustees.

Don always looked forward to family events and vacations.  He was known as a great conversationalist with a wonderful sense of humor.  He loved sports trivia and rock and roll; there was not a piece of music written after 1965 that he could not identify.  In his later years his greatest joy was the time he spent with his grandchildren.

Don was preceded in death by both of his parents. He is survived by his wife Lorraine; their children, Michael and his wife Lana and their two daughters (Sonya and Gabriella); Brian; and Laura and her husband Dana Tiemann, and their three children (James, Sean and Eleanor).  He is also survived by his siblings Christine and her husband Robert McKenna; Paul and his wife Ann; and Thomas and his wife Jacqueline; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

A wake will be held on Sunday, Sept. 25 from 2-6PM at M.A. Connell Funeral Home, 934 New York Ave., Huntington Station, NY.  A funeral service will be held on Monday, Sept. 26 at 11AM at Central Presbyterian Church, 240 Main St., Huntington, NY.  Burial to follow.


In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Michael J Fox Parkinson Foundation.
