Don’s interests included floor curling, Tai Chi, singing with the Barkley Sounds Community Choir and visiting with his friends daily at the Harbour Quay.
Don was a kind and gentle person who loved being with family and friends and was quick to smile and act silly for a camera.
Don was a loving and caring Husband, Father, Grampa, Great Grampa, Brother, Uncle and Friend. Don will be missed by his Children Deb, Don & Dave (Jeanette), Grandchildren Marie, Elizabeth, Alex, Mike, Trisha & Jon, Great Grandchildren Amber, Grace, Jordan & Jayne, Sisters Myrna, Loa & Jean, Brother & Sister in Law George & Doreen, Close Friends Nigel & Danette, Herb & Joan, Marilyn, Paulie, Anna, Alice & the Harbour Quay Gang.

Also, a big thank you to Cindy and the team at Solda’s Restaurant for being a part of our family celebrations and Sunday breakfasts.
