The AOH Allegheny County Convention will be on
Saturday June 3, 2023, at 1:00 pm and hosted by AOH Division 1.
The meeting will be held at the Brentwood VFW.
It is with great sadness that I report to you on the passing of an AOH Allegheny County icon, Kevin Donohue.
Kevin’s tremendous history of bringing about positive changes in our Order on a local, State, and National level was a perfect example for Hibernians, young and older, to emulate, and we are all deeply saddened by his passing.
His family has completed his arrangements, which are attached in the link to his obituary below. Some of his significant history in the Irish community is documented there.
An AOH Prayer Service will be held at 7:00 PM on Thursday, June 1, at the Funeral Home. All are welcome to attend.
May our Lord Jesus Christ welcome him into Heaven and reunite him with his family and friends in Paradise.
Respectfully in our motto,
AOH County Communications
Kevin Daniel Donohue, 84, of West Deer and N. Fort Myers, passed away peacefully on Fri, May 26, 2023, at Hope Hospice House, Cape Coral, FL after a short illness.
Raised in Shadyside, he was the second son of the late Thomas and Elizabeth Doyle Donohue; brother of the late Thomas, Robert, John and Mary Ann Stegman.
Kevin was a graduate of Schenley High School in Pittsburgh, served in the United States Army, and became a State Farm Insurance agent with a thriving business in Bloomfield.
He married Patricia (Kvichak), celebrating their 60th anniversary on May 4th of this year. Together they have two beloved children, Sharon (Frank) Guerra and Kevin Sean and two cherished grandchildren, Kelly and Frank, whom he dearly loved spending time with.
He is also survived by his sisters-in-law Judy Donohue and Audrey (John) Keller and brothers-in-law Ed Stegman, Steven (Mayda) Kvichak and Thomas (Debbie) Kvichak as well as many nieces and nephews.
Kevin was proud of his Irish American heritage and made numerous trips back to Ireland to visit family and friends. He dedicated himself to supporting the local Irish community as a lifetime member of the AOH Division 23, where he held numerous offices including former County Board President and PA State President.
Kevin was also the Chairman of the Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee (1991-2001), former member of the Irish Society for Education & Charity, and the Grand Marshal of the 2005 St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
