DAY, Donald C. - Peacefully, the morning of November 24, 2012 at the Scarborough General Hospital, in his 79th year, after a long battle with cancer. Predeceased by his wife of 49 years, Kitty. Lovingly known as "The Dude". Very good friend of Joyce Scott of Scarborough. He leaves behind four children: Dawna, Michael, Robert and Richard - all of Toronto. He will be sorely missed by his six grandchildren, one great-granddaughter and siblings Jim, Jacquie, Lorne, Gary and Jeanette - all of Western Canada. Born and raised in Alberta, Don moved to Toronto in 1955 after playing one season with the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL. Don's passions included his family first - always - and playing with and coaching his kids on baseball, hockey and football teams. An avid golfer and bridge player, Don always found time to volunteer as convenor, president, commissioner, labourer - you name it - for anyone who asked. You can't believe how much this guy will be missed! All may gather at MCDougall & Brown Funeral Home (Scarborough Chapel), 2900 Kingston Rd., 416-267-4656, on Thursday, November 29th from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph's Highland Creek Catholic Church, 200 Morrish Rd., on Friday, November 30th at 11 a.m. Burial at Christ The King Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to The Scarborough Hospital General Campus Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
