    of Donny sitting in the back of the

    church at Our Lady Of Fatima at the 4:30

    mass on Saturday afternoons while I

    lectored and served on the altar. May

    he forever rest in peace.

    Way to young to leave this earth. I had the pleasure of working with Donald at
    Arvida Shipping Ltd. and The Robert Reford Co. both in Montreal.
    Donald (or as some of us called him
    The Donald) was well liked by his co-workers and could best be described as a quiet, polite gentleman.
    Goodbye old friend.
    May his soul rest in peace.

  4. Dear Gordon, Patricia and family,

    It was with much sadness that we viewed the obituary page of the Montreal Gazette today to learn of Dons passing. Our families date back to our Park Extension days in the fifties and early sixties.

    On behalf of my sister Joyce and myself please accept our condolences

    Dear Gordie & Patricia & Family,
    It has been many years since Park Extension when Donnie, My sister Diana, and I were family friends. We enjoyed dinners and lots of joking around with Norie and all. We often talk about those days and Donnie, we always thought, even in his youth, that he was a gentleman and we always will have a place in our heart for him. Our most sincere condolences. Helen Dydyk Brown
