Obituary of Donald Lee Van Heusen

Donald Lee Van Heusen, 86, passed away on August 23rd, 2022. He was born June 18, 1936, in Ballston Lake, NY and graduated from Nott Terrace High School. Don served in the U.S. Air Force and later began his career with the Schenectady Police Department, serving in several capacities for 34 years, retiring as Lieutenant of Traffic Division.

He was predeceased by his parents, Alexander & Sara Van Heusen, brother Richard Van Heusen and sister Joanne Klock.

Don is survived by his wife of 52 years, Roberta Dutcher Van Heusen, sisters Sally Esposito and Diane Wemple, and many, many much-loved nieces and nephews, grand and great-grand nieces and nephews- you know who you are!

Services private.  Burial at the Schenectady Memorial Cemetery.

Please send Roberta your favorite memory of Don.  Call the Glenville Funeral Home for contact info.

This obituary is relatively short - but it's the way Don would want it.  He was a kind, gentle, thoughtful & giving man. But he was also modest and a man of few- (though sarcastic and so witty) words.

PS- We went over his head and included the photo. Online condolences
