Donald “Skip” Finley
Age 70, of St. Paul Park, MN Passed away on August 4, 2021. Don grew up in South St. Paul, MN, the son of Donald Finley Sr. and Clara Willhite. Many called him "Skip" as a term of endearment since he was a "Jr." Don was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting deer and fishing for panfish with family and friends. He was also the secretary for the Tuesday Night Merchant's bowling league for over 20 years and was a regular of Park Grove Bowl for most of his life (formerly known as Blackbeard's). He loved children and later in life found joy as an aide working with special needs children in the South Washington School District. Don is survived by his partner of 18 years Heidi Saba; children Lindsay (Stephen) Kelly and Wesley (Stephanie) Finley; siblings Ronald (Laurie) Finley, Gordon (Kathy) Finley and Kathie Howard Finley; many beloved nieces and nephews; children, grandchildren and great grandchildren in the Saba family. A celebration of life for family and close friends will be held late in the month of August. Pioneer Press 8/11/21.
