Obituary of Donald R. Sweet

Donald R. Sweet of Greenwich, NY passed peacefully in his sleep April 30th, 2020. He was born in Albany NY before moving to Colonie, NY as a young boy. He was the son of Walter and Geraldine (Hooley) and older brother of Ellen (Britain). He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Ollie (Regan) and his three sons, Christopher (wife Stacy), Greg (wife Meghan), and Jason. He is also survived by 6 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, several in laws, nieces and nephews, many of whom he liked. Known for his laughter and energy, he lived a full and active life. Professionally he spent most of his career as a project manager for large municipal projects and always had a warm place in his heart for his crew. At home he enjoyed travelling with Ollie, visiting with his sons and their families. He never passed up a chance to work on a home project or help a neighbor, and he found watching NASCAR or a college basketball game relaxing We will cherish our time with Don, and the memories we shared with him. Rest in Peace, Pop.
