Michael Louis Donovan, 36, of East Windsor, passed away unexpectedly on February 28, 2019 after a hard fought battle with addiction. He will be greatly missed by his mother and father, Debra and Louis Donovan, both of East Windsor; his brother Derrick Donovan; his sister Kelly Donovan; his maternal grandmothers, Joyce Littlefield and Marian Lagel, his two sons, Camron and Jameson Donovan; and his nieces and nephews, Zackary and Alayna Donovan and Jaden and Brooklyn Pouncey. Michael was born on June 6, 1982 in Hartford, CT and attended school in East Windsor. He was a licensed Fire Sprinkler fitter for the Union Local 669. He loved his family deeply and took pride in coaching his sons' basketball, baseball, and football teams. He loved watching his favorite sports teams The Washington Redskins and The New York Yankees. He enjoyed renting boxing matches and getting takeout food with the kids. Michael had the most amazing smile; it was surely contagious. He also had a heart of gold to match-- he was always joking and making others laugh. He loved music and sports, but mostly spending time with his children. We are devastated by this loss but are so grateful for every moment to have spent with him. Calling hours will be Wednesday, March 6th from 5 to 8 pm at Bassinger & Dowd Funeral Home, 37 Gardner St., East Windsor, CT 06088. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, March 7th at 10:00 am at St. Catherine's Church, Broad Brook, CT. Burial will follow at St Catherine's Cemetery. Family and friends are welcomed to join us after at the German Club in Broad Brook to share any memories of Michael and to help celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the GoFundMe account set up for his sons or to a local addiction service of your choice. For online condolences, please visit

Debbie, Louie, Derrrick and Kelly,
We know there are no words to lessen your pain. Just know that Mike was loved by so many of us. His beautiful smile and his warm heart will forever live in in our memories. Ryan and Shaun have shared many childhood stories of the 4 boys and their mischievous ways that made us laugh through the tears. Our most recent special memory was at Shaun’s wedding and the wonderful speech he made as Best Man. Mike was and will always be an amazing man!

I LOVE you Mike, Derrick, Kelly, Mr and Mrs Donovan! My heart is heavy. Too hard to even think this could happen to my FRIEND. Don’t know how to move on from this, I’m heartbroken. I’ve been gone, away for too many years from my second family. Just wish I made more time to keep in touch, know his children. Nothing can take away from my memories of him and our childhood days. Wish I can go back to those days...
