Don’s family is sad to announce his passing at McKenney Creek Hospice on Wednesday, April 18th, 2012.

He loved animals and he owned, rode and drove Morgan horses for 25 years. Don and Audrey both had long careers at Dom Tar Donnacona. They retired in 1989 and moved to Maple Ridge, B.C. to be close to family and loved ones. He was always an early riser. He was a long time member of Meadow Gardens Golf Club and enjoyed playing golf.

They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, Unheard but always near,
Still loved, still missed,
and very dear!”

    We will sadly miss Uncle Don. He had a great sense of humour and certainly enjoyed life. We enjoyed Don and Audrey making their trips to Ontario and going out of their way to come and visit us. Likewise, I remember stopping in Portneuf on our way to NB every year, and always wanting to see Uncle Don the most. I’m so pleased I was able to get out twice to Maple Ridge and golf 2 or 3 rounds with Don and friends each visit. Audrey, Vicki and I have our thoughts and prayers with you. We will all miss Don tremendously.

  2. Sandra and I wish to extend our sincere condolences. Don is going to be sadly missed by all who new him. He was a loving individual who had a zest for life and I will remember him fondly as my Uncle. Despite his passing, Don’s positive spirit will live on in our hearts. I have nothing but good memories of my Uncle Don and I am happy that we were able to share some laughs whenever our family had a opportunity to visit with each other. Audrey, please know that our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

  3. Please accept my sincere condolences—memories go back a long was—played jESU jOY for your wedding.
    sincerely, Brian Taylor
