Life is a journey of growth and learning, and Don was one of its students.
Born in Montreal to Irene and Reg, and older brother to Arthur (Donna), Don appreciated life. He loved the water, beaches and having fun dancing with friends. He also set many professional goals for himself, and was well respected as a Sales Manager in the candy business. An avid sportsman and always up for fun, he supported his children in their pursuits, coaching their sports teams, and being the dad at the pool that all the kids wanted to play with. He expressed his creative side in woodwork and stained glass, creating many treasures for family and friends.
He leaves behind his loving wife and companion Helen; together their journeys are eternally linked. The family is forever grateful for her unending care that allowed Don to have peace at the closing of his life. He will be missed by his children Darrell (Anna), DL (Andy), Brock, Trina, Christine (Murray), Pam (Kevin), Brian (Lori), grandchildren, great-grandchild, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life service and open house will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at The Dedication Center at Williamsburg, 1541 Fischer-Hallman Rd., Kitchener, Ontario from 1-3 p.m.
In lieu of flowers a memorial donation can be made to St. Mary's General Hospital Foundation.
