Donald Anthony Schena

January 25, 1933 ~ November 15, 2017 (age 84)

Donald Anthony Schena 84, of Toledo, OH, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born January 25, 1933, in Wampum, PA, to parents Pete and Lula Schena.  Don, a nationally recognized athlete for his basketball and baseball skills, while attending Geneva College in Beaver Falls, PA. still holds the single game scoring record set in 1959 with 53 points.  He served as long time plant manager at Holnam, formerly Dundee Cement Company in Dundee, Michigan, and Co-owned since 2003, along with his son David, Midwest Granite in Holland, OH.  Don was a decades long member of the Highland Meadows Golf Club, where he was the holder of numerous club championships. He loved every aspect of being with his friends either on the course or playing cards in the back room! Don was as competitive as they come at either.  He was proud to have served with the United States Army during the Korean War.   Don is survived by his loving wife Jane; children Kimberly of Toledo, Don of Longmont, CO, and David and daughter-in-law Tammie of Toledo; grandchildren Marisa, Mitchell, and Davey Schena; sisters Josephine Zernich of Aliquippa, PA, and Linda Barnes of Maitland, FL; and a host of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Virginia Davis of Wampum, PA.  Family and friends are invited to gather at the Reeb Funeral Home, Saturday, November 18th from 5 – 7:30 PM.  Don’s family would like to thank both the staffs of the 7th floor Oncology Unit at Flower Hospital, and the Promedica Hospice Home Care, for all their loving care and support.  Those wishing to offer memorials in Don’s memory are asked to consider, in lieu of flowers, the American Cancer Society, or the Flower Hospital Oncology Department.
