November 12, 1936 - March 4, 2014
Don passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, surrounded by family. His passing leaves a void for those who love him. Don will be deeply missed. He was the beloved and cherished husband of Colette (nee McKinnon) of Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, whom he leaves behind, as well as a devoted and loving father to their children Nicole Peirce (Alain Farmer) and Drew Peirce. Don was also a loving father to his two children, Lorna Fallavollita (John) and Daniel Peirce (Nancy). He was the proud grandfather of Cristina and Sarah Fallavollita, Catherine, Anne, Francis and Elizabeth Peirce. Don has another grandson on the way. He leaves behind his sister Vera Cameron (Gordon) of Edmonton, as well as many sisters-in-law and brothers-in law, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who loved him dearly. He is predeceased by his parents John and Elfleda Peirce. Don was originally from Edmonton and moved to Ottawa 30 years ago to work for the Human Rights Commission. He was a social worker, and also worked as the Director of the Hamilton Social Planning Council. He touched many lives with his kindness and generosity. Friends will be invited to attend a Memorial Service at the Pinecrest Remembrance Center, 2500 Baseline Road, at a time to be announced later this spring. Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Don may do so to either the Parkinson Society or the Alzheimer's Society.
