DASHNEY, Donald Raymond
January 23, 1929 – February 12, 2014
With great sadness we announce the passing of our dear brother Don, son of the late Donald Leslie Dashney, and the late Mary Margaret Dashney, brother of Edna, of Ottawa, Jim (Clare Power) of Oakville, uncle of Stephen (Nancy), and their children Joseph and Adam of Kingston, Kevin (Suzanne) and their children Mark, Thomas and Marisa, of Whitby. He was pre-deceased by his nephew James Edward. Don attended Corpus Christi School, and St. Patrick's College High School in Ottawa, and graduated from McGill University in Electrical Engineering. He worked and travelled for RCA in Montreal, and later he was Chief Broadcast Engineer for the CBC in Montreal. When he retired Don moved to the Hawkesbury area so he could set up the towers for his amateur radio station. A life-long "ham" he is remembered by many in Montreal and Hawkesbury for his volunteer teaching of the requirements to pass the amateur radio license exam. Don was very active in various radio clubs and often hosted groups taking part in contests. He was a kind and generous man, and will be missed by his family and friends. The family will receive friends at bfRacine Robert & Gauthier Funeral Home, 180 Montreal Road (east of then Vanier Parkway) on Friday, February 14, 2014, from 2-4 & 7-9 pm. Funeral Mass on Saturday at 9:45 am at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 1758 Alta Vista Drive. Interment Notre-Dame Cemetery. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the care of McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home.
