Donald Raymond Pankuch Jr.

November 12, 1958 - December 8, 2018

Donald Raymond Pankuch Jr., also known as Skeeter, took the ultimate fishing trip on Saturday, December 8, 2018 from his home in Bluffton, SC. He was born in Warren, Ohio on November 12, 1958 to Donald Sr. and Laura Pankuch who preceded him in death as well as his brother Brian Pankuch.

Don was devoted to his family and an avid outdoorsmen who enjoyed fishing and hunting. He never took life too seriously and a smile always lit up his face. He was a great cook who was always up for a great time and enjoyed having conversations with everyone he met. His quick witted remarks, silly jokes, and the way he put people at ease will be deeply missed.

Don leaves behind his wife of 20 years, Crystal; his daughters and son-in- laws, Jennifer and Kevin Lazor, Laura and Andrew Clark and Olivia Pankuch; his brothers Roy, Rick, and Gary Pankuch; his sisters Donna Baldwin, Cindy Whittaker, and Barbara Stein; and his grandchildren Mea, Morgan, Mason and Micah Wall and Harrison and Deacon Lazor.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday December 29th 3-6 pm at Buena Vista Cafe,
1305 Buena Vista Ave NE, Warren, OH 44483.

I didn’t have the privilege of meeting Don, but I do know his exceptional daughter- and if she is anything like him, he was a great guy. My prayers are for each family member as you grieve - remember the fun!
