John F. Donovan's Grave Marker



This grave marker which is at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, located at
179 Hackensack Avenue, Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that
John F. Donovan served in the United States Army during World War I and died at the age of 85. 

John F. Donovan was not on the Original Honor Roll listed in the
Evening Record newspaper October 5, 1918, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing
and forevermore. 

Let us never forget the soldier's sacrifice.
