Donald R. Hantak passed away on December 16, 2020 after a courageous battle with vascular dementia. He was born in Cleveland on February 27, 1936.

As a child he moved to Willoughby Hills, with his parents Howard and Louise Hantak and his grandfather John Ebert (of blessed memory).

After his graduation from Hiram College in 1958 he enlisted in the Army for two years and was stationed in Germany.

Don met his wife, Kathleen, while both were employed by the Cleveland Trust Company.
Marrying on September 9, 1972 they moved to Willoughby and raised three children, Erin (Jeff) Ereth, Matthew and Megan (Ed) Noe.

Upon his retirement from The Lubrizol Corporation, he enjoyed his hobbies of gardening and postage stamp collecting.

In addition to his children, he is survived by his three grandchildren, Henry Edward Noe, Jacob Evan Noe and Joan Campbell Ereth, his sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces and dear friends. His wife Kathleen, predeceased him by 18 days.

As a decades’ long parishioner of Immaculate Conception Church in Willoughby, Don had a strong and deep faith.
