On Sunday, August 27, 2023, Donald A. Angel, of Mt. Lebanon, passed away peacefully at the age of 90.
Husband of the late Dr. Geraldine M. Angel; father of Michael J. (Yuan), Donald R. (Jennifer), and Mark E. (Toyomi); grandfather of Sydney and Ava Angel. Donald is preceded in death by his siblings Jack Angel and Betty Howard.
Don grew up in Crafton, PA and although he lived in Mt. Lebanon for 50+ years, always thought of Crafton as home. He served honorably in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. Following his service, Don enrolled in Duquesne University and prepared for a career in accounting. After several initial jobs, Don began working for Westinghouse in 1962 and continued there until his retirement in 1994. Duquesne University held a special place with Don as that is also where he found the love of his life. Gerry was a nursing student there and immediately upon meeting, they were together forever. Raising a family and being married to Gerry meant everything to Don. Although, the Steelers winning four Super Bowls, the Pirates winning two World Series and Pitt winning a National Football Championship in the ‘70s mattered too. Don was a sports enthusiast and passed that passion on to his boys. He and Gerry were avid tennis players and bowlers, and Don was also bitten by the golf bug, a sport he played well into his ‘80s. In retirement, he enjoyed golf, singing with the Harmoney Singers (and performed at Carnegie Hall in NYC), travel and volunteering. Don & Gerry took fun filled trips to Australia, Europe and Africa. His volunteer interests included being a Eucharistic Minister at St. Bernard’s Church and baking pies (oh those apple pies), Westinghouse Sure, the Food Pantry and the American Cancer Society delivering daffodils.
Friends received on Friday, September 1, from 3 until 7pm at Laughlin Cremation & Funeral Tributes, 222 Washington Rd. Pittsburgh, PA 15216. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Saturday, September 2, at 10am at St. Michael the Archangel Parish, St. Bernard Church, 311 Washington Rd. Pittsburgh, PA 15216.
