David W. ('Dawg') McDonald, 68
SKOWHEGAN/WINDHAM -- David Wood Mcdonald, 68, of Windham and Skowhegan, passed away Friday, April 26, 2013 after a nearly 20-year battle with prostate cancer.
David was born in Portland and attended Windham schools, graduating with the Class of 1963. David served in the Army, finishing his military obligation with several years of reserve duty. David's main occupation was as a deputy sheriff in Pasco Co., Fla., (where he earned the nickname 'Depity Dawg'), from which he retired in 1990 and moved to Alaska where he resided for ten years, driving tour buses and managing a resort on Mt. Denali (McKinley) and an apartment building in North Pole. David returned to Maine where he retired and enjoyed time playing bluegrass music and attending both northern and Florida bluegrass festivals.
David is survived by his wife Molly; his father Carroll E. McDonald of Windham; his daughter Brenda Lebo and husband Mark of Milford, N.Y., his daughter Jayne O'Gorman and husband Rob and their two children, Sydney and Travis of Long Island, N.Y.; his sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Blaine Hopkins of Maine and Florida; and niece Maureen of Windham; as well as numerous McDonald and Steeves aunts, uncles, and cousins. David was predeceased by his mother, Marjorie Rose (Steeves) McDonald. No formal services are planned.
