Predeceased by his parents Henry (Harry) and Hazel, his brother James, brother-in-law Howard Stone and twin nephews who passed away in 1944. Born on June 6, 1935 in Minnedosa, Don was known to all his family as a great storyteller and had a dry sense of humour. He enjoyed talking about history and politics to those who had the patience to listen. He loved his pets and was a bird watcher. As a young man he started working in the lumber industry with Monarch Lumber and retired in 1992 from Sexton Building Materials. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, Stonewall.
