Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • My brother is gone and all I have left are the memories. Don was the baby of the family, cute as a button as a child, and maybe some of us will remember him as being a little mischievous as well. Don took up bodybuilding at about 11 years old and had abs by the age of 13! This showed great dedication and he continued exercising throughout his life. Don enjoyed dancing and did break dancing when he was younger. His nieces and nephews could always coax him into doing his rendition of the Running Man. He was a very funny man and even tried stand up comedy a few times. Don got his CPA and started his successful career in the financial industry. He was passionate about his work and the people he worked with and for. If I wanted him to sit on the edge of his chair I would ask him “What would Warren Buffet do?” Don always gave 110%, he was all in. Whenever Don would want to learn something new he would spend hours and days researching the subject. Examples of this are Texas Hold’em, Backgammon, and money managers. Don will be greatly missed by his sister in-law Andree, nieces Britanne and Arianne. We spent a lifetime learning from each other and in your passing you give me your final lesson: It’s hard to say goodbye to someone who’s already gone so don’t wait to reach out to those you love and let them know how you you feel. I love you Don. - Posted by: Rick Jolicoeur (Brother ) on: Sep 18, 2019

  • It truly saddens me to hear about Don's sudden passing and the huge hole it must of left in his family's hearts. Don was my AM when he worked at GWL. We got along great during his time there. I really missed him when he left to go to RBC. It also turned out that he was a neighbor and only lived a half a block away. He will be truly missed by many. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jeanette and the girls. Shannon. - Posted by: Shannon Single (Past co-worker) on: Sep 17, 2019

  • Rest In Peace my good buddy, I’m sorry we weren’t able to reconnect in the last few years, we had so many great times together back in the day. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the Family and especially to Jeannette and the kids at this very difficult time in their lives.

  • I have found memories of working with Don at BDC. He was a fantastic colleague and I always enjoyed his calls, and our conversations. Don was a jovial person, very witty, and it was nearly impossible to have a conversation without having at least some laughs throughout. He will be missed within the BDC group. Wishing and praying for peace, comfort, and hope for the family in the midst of this tragedy. - Posted by: Mark Fruehm (Colleague) on: Sep 16, 2019

  • Don was the BDC account rep for Carte International and that is how I met him 2 or 3 years ago. He was a vibrant, passionate, and energetic man. He was so full of life. Earlier this year I had a wonderful lunch with him at Rae & Jerry's where we compared life stories. He very proudly talked about his family. It very much saddens me to hear about his sudden death at the young age of 51. I will miss his energy and I will miss him. My heart goes out to his family and to his many friends. - Posted by: Brian Klaponski (Business Associate) on: Sep 16, 2019

  • Don was a true joy to work with, and I was honoured to have been a BDC colleague. He was so passionate about everything in his life, but nothing was more important to him than his family. Recently I saw Don, and he asked to show me pictures of Jeanette, Savannah and Chantal. He was very proud of his girls. I’ll always remember Don as a capable, passionate and fun co-worker and friend. He could make me laugh even during the most stressful moments. My prayers are with you, Jeanette, as you and your girls mourn Don’s sudden and tragic passing. - Posted by: Janice Schultz (Colleague) on: Sep 14, 2019

  • I met Don in 2013 through my dad. Over the last several years I really got to know Don very well. He was a very kind, caring and compassionate person. Don and I had countless great conversations together. He was extremely passionate about his career and gave me lots of good advice and became a mentor for me. He loved his wife Jeannette and two daughters, Chantal and Savannah very much and was always very proud when he would speak of them. Our hearts sank when we heard the news and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed. - Alana and Ryan - Posted by: Ryan and Alana Head (Friends) on: Sep 14, 2019

  • Don and I met by chance when I was working at a company where he was the controller in Winnipeg. We hit it off right away; he was smart, funny, witty and you could tell right away that he was just an all-around great person. We kept in touch over the years and ultimately became good friends with him and his wife Jeannette. Don was a stand-up guy who loved his family dearly and would do anything he could to help a friend. He left us far too soon and this is so unfair given how he lived his life. The voids that have been created in the lives of those he has touched will be hard to fill. God Bless the Jolicoeur family and those who were dear to Don's heart. - Posted by: Bill and Careyn Head (Friends) on: Sep 14, 2019
