Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I met Don with my then-boyfriend, lifelong-husband, Nathan. Don, Nathan, and their friend John had known each other since they were 15 years old. Even after we moved to Vancouver, we always visited Don and John on our visits to Winnipeg. The friendship was as strong as ever. I loved listening to the guys reminiscing about their youthful adventures and catching up on their present lives. It was a friendship that spanned decades. My sincere condolences to Don's family and friends. Rest in peace, Don. - Posted by: Lorraine Meltzer (Friend) on: Apr 13, 2021

  • Daniel was a friend of mine for about 12 years. We traveled together to meetings and I was able to get to know him quite well. I will miss our conversations and laughs we had together. REST IN PEACE BUDDY. - Posted by: Robert Wallace (FRIEND) on: Apr 13, 2021

  • I have many fond memories of my first cousin Donny (Daniel). In his teenage years I admired Donny’s tenacity in his pursuit of serious body building resulting in local and provincial competitions. His focus and determination led to a Manitoba bodybuilding competition when he became Mr. Manitoba runner up! Donny was an extraordinary individual, an intellect and a very hard worker. He was like a brother to me and many others. He had a gift of the gab and was an excellent speaker and debater. Donny had a high degree of intelligence and it was often thought he would be destined to become a criminal defence lawyer. Woven amongst Donny’s disabilities were his many abilities. He was a caring, strong and passionate advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. He advocated for those suffering with addictions. Many conversations with Donny usually centred around his passion and efforts towards helping those in need. He was a wise man with an innate ability to listen and understand peoples’ various dilemmas. Donny’s life was a road full of twists and turns, upheaval, misfortunes and typical life nuances. He is now free from his struggles. May he now rest in peace. - Posted by: Barry Hurrie (Cousin ) on: Apr 10, 2021
