Donald E Popek passed away on July 4 at Arbors in Westfield. He was born on October 11, 1931. He grew up in Becket but spent most of his life in Huntington with his wife of almost 69 years, Joyce (O‘Brien) Popek.  He leaves behind seven daughters and their families: Virginia Andrews of Pittsfield, Phyllis (Al) Lussier of Huntington, Christine Czepiel of East Hartford, Donna (Larry) Achee of Port Allen La, Valerie Popek of Pittsfield, Heidi (Rick) Pike of Granville and Heather (Tom) Mello of Becket. He was predeceased by three of his children: Donald Jr, Elaine and Karen.  He was a loving Grampa to his 12 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.  He worked hard to support his family at Westfield River Paper Company in Russell, but in his heart he was a farmer. He loved being outdoors, doing farm work and working in his wood shop.  A private graveside service will be held in the future.  To express condolences to the family of Donald, please visit www.westfieldfuneralhome.com.

I remember Dad taking me to practice driving when I had my learner’s permit. Apparently I was not driving very well. After a lot of rubbing his face and sighing loudly he told me I was all done. I stopped the car and went to get in the passenger seat. He said “NO!” and made me ride home in the back seat. Sorry for the grey hair Dad!
