Bush, Donald (Donnie) Cameron

August 21, 1958 – November 19, 2012
With sadness, we announce the passing of Donnie who was predeceased by his parents, Norma and Don Sr. and brother Dougie.

Left with broken hearts are his loving wife and best friend Lezlie Stark, his faithful companions Tommy & Tuppy, sisters; Cathy Sahaluk (John), Annie Wingert (Calvin), Dianna Adams (Dan), nieces; Samantha and Sabrina, nephews Daniel, Jessie, Luke and Curt.

Donnie’s warm heart, humble demeanour and sense of humour earned friendships that lasted his lifetime. Many will miss him greatly.

  1. Tricia Twarzynski :

    My deepest sympathies to Lezlie, the Bush family and all of Uncle Don’s many friends.
    Uncle Don was the kind of uncle you could count on. Inevitability every time my parents (Glen & Marleen Russell) went out of town, my sisters and I would break something and we could always count on him to come to the house and have everything repaired before Mom & Dad got home. Although I hadn’t seen him in years, when I visited him a few weeks ago, I was reminded what a kind, caring and funny person he was. I wished we could have reconnected under different circumstances however, I will cherish that final visit with him.
    Rest in peace, Uncle Don.
    Love, T and family

  5. From my heart to yours Lezlie and the Bush family, I send my deepest sympathy. Uncle Don, or Boomer as I called him, was a good friend and excellent uncle and he will be dearly missed. Like T, I reconnected with him under the wrong circumstances but I am so happy I went to see him. He could not have been more warm and welcoming and it was as if no time had passed. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time. Love, Lorie and family

    I wish all those who loved Uncle Don peace at this difficult time. Growing up, I enjoyed his sense of humour and kindness that he showed to us “kids”.
    My condolences,

    To the Bush family, my heart felt condolences. Donnie was my peewee team mate, our team was brutal. Remember we tied a game that year, my dad [Al] was elated. This was the start of a life long friendship. Donnie, my friend, rest in peace.
