Donald DiMattia, 65, of Williamstown passed away suddenly on October 23, 2023.
Don was one of the lucky ones who met the love of his life, Barbara (née Polanski), when he was just 17 years old. They grew up across the street from each other and were so excited to start their life together that they married just 3 years later. Married for 45 wonderful years, they had three beautiful girls: Nicole (Josh) Turella, Rachel (Tim) DiMattia-Hawkins, and Stacy (Tim) Brant. He was the proud grandfather of Mia, Chase, Cole, and Lucas. Don was proceeded in death by his mother Margaret (née Hines), father William Sr, and brother William Jr. He is survived by his sister Cheryl (Carl) Polanski, brother Tony DiMattia, and many loved nieces, nephews, friends, and coworkers.
Anyone that knew Don, knew that his wife, kids, and grandkids were his pride and joy. Don spent his life making sure his girls were always ok and needed nothing. He was always there for someone with a pocket full of advice and unwavering support and love. There was nothing he enjoyed more than spending time with all of his grandchildren, vacationing, and taking random drives down the shore with his wife just for pizza, to Donkeys for cheesesteaks, and for breakfasts at the diner. He loved watching Philly sports with all of his kids and their spouses—really just about anything that had to do with his family being under one roof. Christmas parties with the whole family were something he looked forward to every year. Don was the life of every party; he knew how to get the roof raised and always needed to know who let the dogs out. He made everyone around him feel loved and could always make anyone laugh. Don worked as an Operating Engineer for DCO Energy in Atlantic City for over 35 years and was proud to be a member of I.U.O.E Local 68.
If you had the honor of meeting Don, you were one of the lucky ones. Don will be missed terribly by all who knew him and will always be remembered for his hard work ethic which he instilled in all of his children, his witty sense of humor that can brighten anyone’s day, and most importantly, the love he had for his family and friends.
