March 31, 1935 - January 11, 2012
From a peaceful rest, on 11 January 2012 at the age of 76 years, Don embarked on the final adventure of this life. Don is survived by his wife of 51 years, Marilyn, his mother Doris Dupont of Carstairs, as well as his sons and their families; son Robert (Loreli) and granddaughters Gina, Kaley and Morgan, and son Michael (Susan) and grandchildren Robert and Annette. Don was predeceased by his father C.E., his daughter Barbara and his brother Bob. Hailing from Morrin, Alberta Don came to make his life in Calgary where he made his mark in automotive related work and play, culminating in his induction into the Canadian Street Rodding Hall of Fame in 2009. Known as being 76 going on 17, he had the most incredible zest for life. His wacky sense of humor and the life lessons he taught will long be remembered by many. A Celebration of Don's Life will be held at SOUTH CALGARY FUNERAL CENTRE, 12700 Macleod Trail South (at Lake Fraser Gate), Calgary on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Don's memory to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, 2020 - 10 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2M 3M2.
