It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father, Charlie Don,
on November 3rd, 2018 in his 94th year. His wisdom, kindness, generosity and guidance through four generations made us a much better family.
Charlie was a veteran of WW11 Royal Canadian Navy as well as owner of a successful business Don’s Plumbing and Heating.
Charlie was predeceased by his wife and best friend Helen (Evans) after 43 years of marriage and his son-in-law Al Gardner who was a great friend to Charlie.
He is survived by his daughters Heather Gardner and Lesley Moxley (Dave), as well as 5 grandchildren Derek (Agnes), Emily (Troy O’Handley) Gardner, Nicole (Josh Roberts) , Candice and Michael Moxley. Charlie had 5 great grandchildren who he always had fun with until they were too noisy! Tristan Schaefer and Alexandra Gardner, Dominick, Damien and Deklan O’Handley, as well as Payton and Jacob Roberts.
Charlie is survived by his sister Nancy Bowlby of B.C. and predeceased by his sister Peggy Walsh of Hamilton Ontario.
Charlie’s wonderful friend Janet Clayton filled his last 16 years with travel and fun. Her companionship was a wonderful gift.
Angela Morrison was a true friend to Charlie. Her kindness and fun spirit was always appreciated by family, Janet and Dad.
A special “Thankyou “ to the wonderful staff of Sunnyside Nursing Home . The staff of Shantz Hill wing filled his days with kindness and comfort.
As per wishes, there will be a private Celebration of Life for family.
In lieu of flowers we would appreciate donations to Sunnyside Nursing Home Foundation (Kitchener) or a charity of your choice.
