January 18, 1937 – October 7, 2020
Don was born on the family farm near Mortlach, Saskatchewan on January 18, 1937 and passed away quietly at Kelowna General Hospital on October 7, 2020.
He is survived by his loving wife Jane, daughters Caroline and Wanda, son Mark, 6 grandchildren and brothers Duane and Ivan.
After retiring from BC Rail in 1992 Don and Jane moved to Blind Bay BC then Salmon Arm BC, and more recently Kelowna BC.
Don was always willing to give his time to others. He spent hours making wooden rocking horses which he would give away to families with young children. His final horse was made in 2019 and it numbered 362. He even took some in pieces in his luggage to Mexico to assemble and give away there. During retirement Don and Jane were consistent supporters following their grandchildren in the many sports they were involved with.
If you have had the chance to meet Don, we hope you can take a moment to reflect on a fond memory you may have. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
