Obituary for Bob J Donovan

Bob J. Donovan, born on March 30, 1936, in Knoxville, TN transitioned his soul into the arms of our Savior Jesus Christ, on January 7, 2019. Bob graduated from Farragut High School in 1954 before entering the United States Air Force Academy. After being discharged, he became the National Sales Manager for Royal Sewing Machines in Richmond, Virginia, after marrying the love of his life, Mary Spurlin Donovan in 1959. After a brief stint in Philadelphia, PA, Bob and Mary moved back to Tennessee where they owned and operated Donovan, Inc. until 2012. During their tenure as a contracting firm, Bob, alongside his wife for life, created thousands of jobs all over America. A true entrepreneur, Bob guided his three sons with the same opportunistic style. Bob and Mary created three souls left to cherish their memories in Bobby, Brad, and Bart. He also leaves nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws too numerous to name, all of his love and memories. Preceded in death by parents, Claude and Geneva Donovan; brother, Claude, Jr.; and sisters, Madge Stapp and Judy Hamilton. Bob succumbs this life and joins his people in Heaven with our forever, Lord. A very special thank you to Scott Ballenger and Chris Stapp, my father's nephew/son for taking care of a man they much admired, and to the UT Hospice Care and all the nurses and Doctors on East Wing Floor 6. Thank you for fighting with us! God's Speed. Family will receive friends 1-2pm Saturday, January 19 at Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel with a Service to Celebrate Bob's life to follow with Rev Andrew Prince officiating. Graveside will follow at Concord Masonic Cemetery with full military honors conferred by East TN Veterans Honor Guard and the US Air Force. In lieu of flowers, and in honor of George, Bella, Angel, BJ, and Champ, please send donations to Young Williams Animal Shelter www.young-williams.org
