Obituary for Jonathan William DeHaven

Jonathan William DeHaven, aged 40, passed from this life on August 19, 2020. Mourning his loss is his Significant Other and Loved One, Mindy Rettinger, and her four children. Jonathan and Mindy discovered their love for one another in Ocean City, Md. in 2017 and they treasured returning there each summer to celebrate the anniversary of that precious discovery.

Also, in mourning is his father William " Bill " DeHaven, Jason DeHaven, Jonathan's only brother, Jason's sons, Gavin and Noah, and Jason's Significant Other and Loved One, Chrissy Dillman. He was also survived by numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins all of whom will miss him dearly.

Jonathan was preceded in death by his mother, Deborah Cloud DeHaven, who passed from this life on September 6, 2004 when Jonathan was 24 years old.

Jonathan was well liked, and his company enjoyed by many. He made friends without effort. If you knew Jonathan, you knew that " It's all good!! " He was an avid golfer and many of his friends played golf with him at the Woodbrier Golf Course at which place he was the club champion in 2010 and there won other titles in team play with cherished friends, and many there will remember him and mourn his loss. Jonathan's laugh was contagious and enduring, and his smile lit up a room. His death leaves a space in the lives of many which can never be filled.

The Brown Funeral Home will be open for family to receive friends only from the hours of 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 25, 2020. Visitors will be required to wear face masks, practice social distancing, and follow directives.

We called John "JD" affectionately. When his mother was in decline he stayed with my family mostly. I will never forget weeks before she died she tanked me and my family for watching over him. We LOVED him! I couldn't believe it when I found out. It hurt me deeply. I will never forget his smile and soft nature. I will be 100 and never forget the memories and years we all spent together. He went to Orioles games and to the beach with us. He will always be in our hearts! We miss you J!

Amanda, Bob, Jody and Robbie

You will defintely be missed and Ocean City will never be the same without you there. Glad to have known you for years. We saw each other grow up. I am very sad but happy to know you will always be looking down upon us and flying high with the angels. Rest in peace my friend until we can meet again one day in heaven. You will be missed dearly.
