    I met Don a couple of times during his tenure at the Port Moody Mill on business calls, what a decent person to know. –Peace–

  4. Don will be missed by all at Flavelle. Here at Flavelle, it is not unusual for careers to last 20,30,40 or more years. In that time,your co-workers become your friends and second families. I dare say that we spend more time with our co-workers than we do with our real families.That is why I suspect people here stay for 40 plus years. You just don’t retire from your families.

    That is why it’s especially hard when your friends that you spent years with have their lives cut short in their prime,are taken from you.

    Sadly, Don is not the first, nor the last, I suspect to be taken from us, but it saddens us just as deep. He was truly a free spirit who will continue to inspire us. His untimely passing will cause us always to reflect on the importance of living every moment to the fullest.

    For that, we say thank you. Buddy, you will always be with us in spirit.

  5. Our hearts go out to Don’s family during this difficult time.
    Darrell knew Don through working at the Hammond Mill. He was highly respected and well liked.
    We we’re very touched by his positiveness and courage through this difficult illness.

    We would have liked to have been there for his Celebration of Life but are away at that time.

    Peace for Don.

    Memories for his family.

    Lois and Darrell Black

Donny was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed by all who knew him. It is with sincere regret that I could not attend the memorial service today but please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
    Take care…….. Love Linda
