Donald Hellerman

Donald Hellerman, 61, of Cheshire, CT, passed away on August 21, 2023. Donald was born on September 21, 1961, in Doylestown, PA to Doris Mellor Hellerman and the late Richard Hellerman.

Donald graduated from Penn State with a B.S. in Quantitative Chemistry which led to a career focused on Quality Management. During his career, he completed certification as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt which lead to his most recent position as Site Quality Leader for Perkin Elmer Shelton. Donald was an avid fisherman and boater who loved offshore tuna fishing trips. Donald was also a cyclist who cycled more than 2000 miles a year. Donald was also a marksman who enjoyed target shooting and had recently won a target shooting contest at the local gun range where he was a member. Donald was perceived as Grumpy but had a huge heart and would help all who asked. Donald was a very proud owner of a dachshund name Stoli who is larger than life (at least 10 times his actual size). Don had taken up cooking in the recent years and was perfecting some of his favorite dishes including sausage biscuits and gravy, Black Seabass or Mahi tacos, and breakfast burritos.

In addition to his mother, Doris, Donald leaves behind his brother, Tracy and Tracy's wife Jennifer, nephew Matthew, and niece Lili. He was predeceased by his father Richard.
