Arthur Donn Resnick was born on August 11, 1925 in Detroit, Michigan. He was the beloved husband of Edith "Edie" L. Resnick. Cherished father of Dr. Nancy Resnick, Karen Resnick, and Robert (Sharon) Resnick. Adoring grandfather of Micah, Michelle, and Carolyn Resnick. Loving brother of the late Gayle Goldman. Devoted son of the late Maurice M. and the late Helen (Radner) Resnick. Dear uncle of Ron (Carol) Goldman, Sue (Tracy Ott) Goldman, and Amy Goldman. Proud great-uncle of Mac Goldman.

Donn and Edie were married for 73-1/2 years. His family was always foremost in his mind and surpassed all of his other passions. He was an avid bird watcher, downhill skier and national ski patrolman, bridge player, marathon walker, long distance swimmer, canoer, and an outdoorsman with a fierce love of Algonquin Park and Camps Tamakwa and Michigania.

Donn and Edie enjoyed traveling, visited every continent, most of the United States, and Canada. He supported a variety of Jewish community organizations.

At 23 years of age, he founded Resnick Electric and was the youngest electrical contractor in the city of Detroit. He graduated from the University of Michigan with three bachelor degrees: Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Engineering Mathematics.

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 50 for an outdoor service or 25 for an indoor service.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.
