Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
My grandpa and Don were neighbours and became great friends over the years. I remember Don as a kind person and was always working on something in his yard and talking to my grandpa about over the fence. Chris and I used to play when we were younger and lots of memories of being at his dad’s house playing sega. I haven’t spoke to Chris in some years but my condolences to you. Your dad was a great person and friend, may he rest in peace. - Posted by: James Anderson (Family friend ) on: Mar 26, 2023
My condolences to Don's family. He has been a family friend and neighbor to my father Hudson Anderson for over 35 years. We will miss the chit chats and help he has given my family. Rest in Paradise Don - Posted by: Walda Anderson Izzard (Friend ) on: Mar 26, 2023
My deepest sympathies to my little cousins for the loss of their brother and father. I am your 3rd cousin from the Champagne side of the family. Your grandfather Achille Champagne and my grandfather Alphonse Champagne's are first cousins. You may not know me, but I am still offering my condolences to you. Your cousin Rodger Champagne gave me the information for this side of the family. - Posted by: Richard Girouard (3rd cousin) on: Mar 19, 2023
My condolences to Don’s family and friends. Don and I met at Radisson School and were close friends for many years. I moved to Brandon for three years and when I came back to Winnipeg it was like I never left. I have many stories about our antics, too many to write down. He will be sorely missed. - Posted by: Tim Silk (Friend) on: Mar 18, 2023
Sending my condolences and prayers to the family. I will always remember my dear friend he was always there for me in good and bad times. We would alway hang out together on Saturday nights at the Spike dancing to our favourite tunes (My friends got a girlfriend and he hates that). He was always there when you need help with repairs around the house. I will miss our lunch dates. God took you from us to soon but knew you needed the rest. Love and miss you till we meet again . Love You Friend Colleen ❤️❤️❤️ - Posted by: Colleen Read (Friend ) on: Mar 18, 2023
