DONALD ANDREW SIBBALD Donald Andrew Sibbald passed away at home on January 8, 2021, at 69 years of age. Don was born to Anne and Cal Sibbald in Toronto, ON on April 24, 1951, growing up spending his summers on Lake Simcoe at the family cottage. After receiving his law degree from the University of Western Ontario, he moved with his wife Barb to Calgary, AB where they settled and started a family. A well-respected member of the Calgary legal community, Don was appointed a Queen's Counsel in 2010. He also contributed to the community through his volunteer work with the Calgary Food Bank, the Red Cross and Meals on Wheels and through his part-time teaching at SAIT. While taking great pride in his work, Don was happiest when surrounded by his family and friends and loved spending time at the cottage at Pine Lake, AB, waterskiing, boating, and sharing meals and laughs with loved ones, especially sitting on the deck with a drink in hand. Don's love, support, and the obvious joy and pride he took in his wife and son knew no bounds and his kindness, generosity, and laugh will be remembered fondly. Don is lovingly remembered by his wife Barbara Sibbald; son Christopher Sibbald (Angela Reid); sister Joy Railton (John Railton); his nieces and nephews, extended family, and the Pine Lake crew. "I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray, I hear it in the deep heart's core."
