Donald Fred Knowles August 23, 1926 - November 9, 2012
Born in Maryfield, Saskatchewan, Donald Fred Knowles made Vancouver his home in 1946. Here he married and proudly cared for his family. Known for his conservative nature and great sense of humour, Don enjoyed fishing, camping, and travelling with his family. It is with great sadness that we announce his passing. He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Rochelle, sister Alice (Dave), daughter Donna (Victor), and grandchildren Jeff and Amy. We will miss you Don - you proved that life is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.
A viewing will be held at 12:00pm on November 15, 2012 at the Burquitlam Funeral Home (625 North Road, Coquitlam), a graveside service will follow at 1:30pm at Port Coquitlam Cemetery (4150 Oxford Street, Port Coquitlam). In lieu of flowers, Don's family would appreciate donations made to the Vancouver Union Gospel Mission.
