Obituary

Donald J. Slovonic age 72, of Canonsburg and formerly of Davie, FL, entered eternal life on November 17, 2020.   Loving husband of Malena and devoted father to Zachary, Don is survived by his siblings James (Mary), Barbara, Margaret, Martin, and Patrick (Melody), numerous nieces and nephews, and countless friends.

Son of the late Peter and Peg Slovonic, Don was a proud Vietnam Vet.  He continued his calling to protect and serve, establishing a distinguished career as a homicide detective in North Miami Florida. Following his retirement from the police force, he rejoined his large and loving family in Pittsburgh with a cherished family of his own. Tough on the outside, Don was also kindhearted and fun-loving, enjoying years of fun family vacations, loving holiday traditions and lucky trips to the casino. He is dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
