Donald John Schlag, 83, of Bayville, NJ passed gracefully on September 13, 2020 surrounded by his family.

Donald was born on May 3, 1937 to John Lewis Schlag and Bridget Della Maloney Schlag in New York City. He graduated from Bishop Dubois High School in 1955.

After graduation, he proudly served in the Army and Army Reserve.

On August 19, 1957, he met the love of his life, Patricia Anne Corrigan in the Catskills. They married on May 16, 1959, going on to have 3 children Steven Francis, Jean Marie and Ellen Anne. They happily raised their children in Saddle Brook, NJ.

After retiring as a VP at H.A. Metzger, Donald and Patricia moved to the Catskills where they originally fell in love.

Donald was predeceased by his parents and son Steven. He is survived by his wife Patricia, daughter Jean and son-in-law Robert Nebbia, daughter Ellen and son-in-law Kenneth Hughes, daughter-in-law Tomoko, grandchildren Devin, Dakota, Shane, Garrett, Sierra and Sean, great grandchildren Ava and Meadow and many cousins, nephews and nieces.

Donald loved music, nature, sketching, antiques, aviation, history, dancing with his wife but mostly making people laugh. His legacy of compassion, kindness, sense of humor and humility will never be forgotten. Simply stated, “Everyone Loved Him!”

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Mastapeter Memorial Home in Bayville.

Pat and family,
I'm sorry for your loss. I should have told this to Don. As you know I met Don on the bus from Saddle Brook to NYC which I took every day to high school. We became friends and were ever since. He taught me empathy and compassion toward young men and women who make mistakes. It's a lesson I paid forward quite a few times and took with me the rest of my life. It was a lesson that gave me real satisfaction. Don made a a big, big impression on me. Both of you were at my wedding and we've talked and stayed in touch ever since. He was a good man. My deepest condolences.
Johnny Ottina
