May 18, 1933 – February 11, 2014
Mr. Donald Andrew McFadyen passed away in the Rimbey Hospital & Care Centre on Tuesday February 11, 2014 at the age of 80 years.
Don will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his friend Annie Krossa; his children Gordon, Donna (Rob), Barb (Ron), Brian (Doris), Sheri (Rod); brother Bruce; half siblings Bronwyn, Steven, Michael, Janet, Marjorie, and Terrance; nine grandchildren and three great- grandchildren.
Don is predeceased by his wife Shirley, brother Jack, mother Jenny Brown, step mother Mae Lewis, and half siblings Dale, Robert & Jeannie.
Don dedicated his life to serving his family and community. We celebrate Don's involvement in the Handivan and Historical Societies, Health Boards, Town Council, Ambulance and Fire Departments, and Masons. Over the years he served as Marriage Commissioner, Notary, Justice of the Peace, funeral officiant, hockey referee, and boy scout leader. His biggest passion was dancing: teaching, judging, entertaining at care homes, and dancing till the band quit playing!
In honour of Don, Memorial Services will be held from the Rimbey Community Centre on Monday, February 17, at 1 PM. With Reverend Deborah Laing Officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Rimbey Handivan Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
