STACK - Donald J. (Don) of Greenlawn, NY passed away early morning on March 23, 2021. Don was born on November 21, 1937 and was one of seven Stack brothers born to Martin Stack and Mary Connors. Known by many for his toughness, his smarts and his character, as well as his care for friends and family, Don was truly a living legend, creating relationships across generations old and young. As a husband, father, grandpa, coach, Vice President, golfer and friend, Don was the epitome of a gentleman, patriarch and competitor. Don's self-proclaimed, greatest accomplishment was convincing Joan Olenick to be his wife. That was 54 years ago and they laughed and loved from the day they met. Don is survived by Joan, his two brothers, Martin and William, and his two sons and their families - Ken and his wife Sue and their three sons (Ryan, Ben and Colin), and Rich, his wife Amy, and his two children, Drew and Mia. A final viewing will be held on Friday, March 26th from 4pm until 8pm at Brueggemann Funeral Home on Larkfield Road in Northport, NY. Mass will be held at 10am on Saturday, March 27 at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Centerport, NY. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in the name of Donald J. Stack to be made to: Cardinal Hayes High School, his alma mater, in the Bronx, NY.

I just discovered Don had passed. I worked for him at Carter Wallace from 1984 until he retired. He was a true gentleman. I was truly sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to Joan and the rest of his family.

Don had such a wonderful smile and always seemed genuinely so happy to see me! He was so kind, loved his family and thoroughly loved spending time with his grandkids. I enjoyed watching him interact with the boys- he sure taught them a lot. I will miss Don and his sweet presence at gatherings. Hugs to the family -

Dear Joan and Family, We are so very sorry about the loss of your beloved husband. Don. Joan, I met you at Indian Hills and we spoke about how I commuted on the LIRR with Don for a few years in the 1980´s . I just loved him! He was such a gentleman, so funny, kind, and sincere. And you are exactly the same. No wonder he was crazy about you!! I loved hearing all his stories about working with various TV studios, especially Green Acres! He was so patient in telling me every detail about what it was like, as I was a big fan of the show. I pray for God´s richest blessings upon you and your family. May you be comforted, uplifted, supported, and assured you will be together again. With our love and deepest sympathy, Anne and Jim Schwecherl

Joan and Family, It takes only two words to describe Don `Great Person´. Anyone who spent time with Don knew he was a special and ` Great Person´. With sympathy, Dick & Anne Barry
