Donald K. Fine, of Marblehead, entered into rest on April 5, 2021 at the age of 86.
Beloved husband of Charlotte (Germain) Fine. Devoted father of Michele Fine of Seattle, Washington, Sheri Fine Schapiro of Marblehead, and Stephen and Delia Fine of Kensington, Maryland. Cherished grandfather of Alexandra, Adrienne, and Paul Fine, and Max and Noah Schapiro. Dear son of the late Allan and Fannie Fine.
Donald was born in Lewiston, Maine, and grew up in Lynn. He graduated from Lynn Classical High School in 1951, Tufts University in 1955, and earned a Master’s Degree in Chemistry from Northeastern University. Donald later graduated from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in 1967.
He raised his family in Marblehead. He was a pharmacist by trade, and was a dedicated member and volunteer of Temple Beth El (now Congregation Shirat Hayam) for over 50 years. Donald was a lifelong Red Sox fan, and one of his favorite memories was attending the 2004 World Series with his son Stephen. Later in life, he and Charlotte loved traveling to visit their children and grandchildren, and also enjoyed trips to Paris, London, Italy, and Israel. Most of all, he felt ever-lucky to have married the best cook in the world, and until his last day, firmly believed his wife Charlotte’s chicken soup was the very best around. He is loved by many and is already missed more than words can express. We know that he is now telling his jokes to our loved ones, of blessed memory.
Due to the regulations imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, links will be made available to livestream both the funeral service and private interment at The Pride of Lynn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either Congregation Shirat Hayam or The Jimmy Fund. To read his complete obituary, visit stanetskyhymansonsalem.com.
