Surrounded by loved ones, Donald Braun passed away at the age of 84 on November 16, 2022, in the comfort of his home in Altona.
Don was predeceased by his wonderful wife Lorna of 43 years in March of 2022. He will be missed dearly by his family, including children, Sheilagh (Natalie, Lisa), Paula (Wayne), Chris (Victoria, Annika, Marshall, Hope) and CJ (Nevaeh, Rain). The family is forever grateful to his dear friends, Flab and Sharon Friesen who have provided immense support to Don in his last few months.
Don was a very accomplished man; he became a pharmacist in 1963, was a big part of Braun Drug pharmacy from graduation until his retirement and even served as a member of Altona's town council. He was friendly face in the community, his bright smile and signature mustache were able to light up a room, and that quick wit and sense of humour stayed with him until his last days. Don was always thrilled to hear of his families' achievements and was quick to boast about them; you could see and feel the pride he felt with every word. He absolutely loved to travel, and he and Lorna made a great pair as they adventured to different places, but always made their way back home to be close to their friends and family. While at home, he could often be found puttering around in the garden. This was a great pride of his, and he was always eager to show off his fabulous flora.
Don's time may have come to an end, but his stubborn spirit and incredible strength will live on in all those who's lives were touched by him.
A private service will be held at a later date.
