TITMUS, Donald Amos

May 28, 1930 – Brantford, Ontario
April 11, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Don Titmus Sr., of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at the age of 87 years.

Don was born in Brantford, Ontario and was the eldest of four children. He and his siblings, Doris, Les and Earl grew up in Brantford and raised their families there. Don became a sheet metal tradesman, a trade he practiced well into his retirement years. Don met his wife Coleen in his late teens. They were married when he was 21. The children came two years apart and parenting was a big part of their early life. Much fun was had at the family cottage at Long Point Beach.

The children moved west as adults and Don and Coleen joined them in Calgary in 1982. Soon thereafter they purchased their house on Penmeadows Place and lived there for the remainder of their years. The local Church of the Nazarene was a big part of their life and many back yard parties involving friends, family and neighbours were held. Don’s two boys lived within walking distance and were daily visitors. The girls lived in BC and came frequently to visit.

Don was a grandparent to seven and a great grandparent to eleven. Don lived a good life and has joined his wife in heaven.

Don is survived by his four children, Don Jr., Yvonne, Kelly, Jim, and their families. He was predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Coleen.

Funeral Services will be held at Calgary East Church of the Nazarene (5420 – 8th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB) on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 2:00p.m. Reception to follow at the church.
