Don will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him, especially his wife, Eva; daughters, Terri (Rob) and Jennifer (Kelly) and grandsons, Carter and Colby. He will also be remembered by his sister, Wendy Munro and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and his Aunt Norma.
Even though Don suffered from MS for many years, he embraced life and was never one to miss an opportunity to socialize and share his unique sense of humour. Much of this socializing revolved around his love of sports, being an active curler (eventually wheelchair curling) and a regular at Eskimo, Oilers, Oil Kings and Trappers games. He was also a member of Blue Goose International where his friends ensured he was taken care of at meetings and activities; the family thanks these special friends for the happiness this brought him.
We would also like to acknowledge the staff at the long-term care facilities (Choice, Hardisty, Devonshire, and South Terrace) who looked after Don as his Dementia worsened the last couple years. Also, a heartfelt thank you to the special nurses on Unit 43 at Grey Nuns for their compassionate care as he battled Pneumonia his last few days.
There will be no formal service at this time. (He would love for you to kick back with a cold one, smile from a memory of him and then buy a winning lottery ticket that he had always hoped to find!).
