  • Don was one of my favourite connections back to London. Days with Desco Plumbing… but more importantly, it was the hilarious emails and Facebook comments I’d get from him. Timing was everything… he helped me through some difficult times and may not have even known he was doing it. I’m going to miss Don. There is truly now one less light illuminating the world

  • Thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. I have many fond memories of the times we were together in Mt Elgin and also, our vacation to Barbados (many years ago now, but seems like yesterday). Ryan has also commented that as he was on his way home from working on a job in Grand Bend, seeing Don sitting on your front porch. I’m not sure if he ever stopped in but, he often mentioned seeing Don. I know he will miss seeing him sitting there.

  • So saddened to hear about Don’s passing. Even though we had not seen each other for many years, I will always cherish the memories that we generated together in our teens when your family lived on the corner of King and Carol streets in Ingersoll. Our thoughts and prayers are with Don’s family at this time.
