Donald B. Heath

Mr. Donald B. Heath, of Weymouth, passed away peacefully on May 10, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.

He was a Korean War Veteran having served in the United States Air Force “Keepin’ ‘em flying”. Donald was an amazing artist. His passion for nature, birds, and sports influenced his artwork. He was an active member of the Quincy, Braintree, Weymouth, and Abington Art Associations. He loved to show his work at community art events such as the Marshfield Fair and Quincy ArtsFest. He passed on his knowledge to his children and grandchildren. He was an avid Red Sox and Bruins fan. He loved to go to spring training games in Florida, which was like his second home. Haines City was his “happy place” where he would enjoy sitting outside by the lake sketching wildlife, taking day trips to his favorite attractions, and spending time with the McKays. Don will be dearly missed by all those that knew and loved him.
