It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Donald Lloyd Cann on June 25, 2019.
Don was born on June 10, 1927 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. At an early age he started working in the family electrical contracting business with his father. Later on he and his brother, Glen, took over the business and worked there most of their life.
Don married the love of his life, Norma Clark on June 9, 1956. They were married almost 59 years until Norma's passing in 2015. They shared many family times and vacations together with their daughters, Sharon and Darlene.
Don loved swimming, hockey, golfing, playing volleyball and bike riding. He stayed active most of his life. Later in life, he enjoyed his early morning coffee at McDonald's with his buddies. He will be remembered for his strength, friendly disposition and great sense of humour.
He leaves to mourn daughters, Sharon (Dale) and Darlene (Gilles), granddaughter, Carly and her boyfriend, Tyler, grandson, Nicolas, brother, Glen, brother-in-law, Wayne, sisters-in-law, Carole and Mary Ellen, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Norma, and parents, Daisy and Horace.
A private service will be held at a later date for family.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Arthritis Society, Heart & Stroke Foundation, CancerCare Manitoba or charity of choice.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Grace Hospital for their caring and support.
