February 3, 1941 – December 29, 2015
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, Dad, and Grampa Don.
Don passed away December 29, 2015 at the age of 74 in Cranbrook, BC. Anyone who knew Don could see how much he loved all of his family and friends. Don had a terrific sense of humour and always had a smile on his face. Don and his wife Dot shared many memorable moments traveling extensively throughout North America. The most cherished times had by Don were spent with his family and friends playing his guitar.
Don is survived by his loving wife of 28 years Dorothy Ann, sons Ben (Jane), Bud (Leigh), Ted (Kathy), Clay (Joan), and his favorite daughter Colette (Al). Don is also survived by his brother John (Donna) and sister-in-law Lois as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Don has a legacy of 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Don was predeceased by his parents Jack and Sadie and his brother Bud.
A private family graveside service was held at the Marysville cemetery followed by a celebration of life at the Kimberley Elks Club on January 4, 2016.
