Donald Allen Golob
It is with the deepest sadness that the family of Donald Allen Golob announce his passing on October 24, 2015 in Nanaimo. Suffering the indignities of cancer with as much tenacity, guts and pure strength of will as is humanly possible, he left us all with advice for the future: make the most of your life. He certainly made the most of his; completing the Pacific Crest Trail; trailrunning the North Shore mountains, the Knee Knacker and the Kusam Klimb; bagpiping, travelling the world; and being a super dad to his two boys. Work colleagues will recall his leadership and organizational skills, either facilitating with a not-for-profit or volunteering with IAP2. We all will miss his wit, intellect, insight and unique fashion sense.
He leaves behind his loving wife Susan Clift, sons Johnathan and Benjamin, siblings, nieces and nephews, parents, many friends and colleagues, and Amber the cat. A celebration of life will take place at the Lantzville house in the New Year.
A special thank you to Dr. Andrzej Buczkowski, Dr. Andrew Attwell, Dr. Alan So, the nurses with Nanaimo Home Care Services, and especially to Richard Golob and Julie Dunne. You all gave so much of yourselves in Donald’s 10 year journey with cancer.
