Don’s career as a Machinist and Foreman spanned for 37 years at DND Esquimalt. Upon retirement, Don and Fay moved to Nanaimo spending winter months enjoying Yuma, Arizona.  A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, February 25th, 2006 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion, Lantzville BC.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Don’s memory to the BC Cancer Society.
