MacDonald, Donald
(Retired OPP Sergeant)

Passed away peacefully at the St. Lawrence Lodge on February 7, 2020 in his 85th year. Much loved husband of Violet. Donald will be missed by his dear sister Ann, brother Al, sisters-in-law Olive and Morag, and many nieces and nephews. Missed sadly by best friends Peter Leclair, John Barbour, and Alan Low. He enjoyed his time with his golf buddies and bridge partners; two games he loved to play. We all have precious memories.

A service will be planned at a later date with arrangements entrusted to the Irvine Funeral Home and Chapel, 4 James St. E., Brockville. As expressions of sympathy, donation to the Kidney Foundation, St. Lawrence Lodge, or a charity of your choice will be appreciated.

Don will be greatly missed by friends and family. Those of us who had the good fortune to play golf with him on a weekly basis with the ERL group, came to know Don as a kind, honourable, easy going, and loyal friend. He was always an gentleman in the truest sense of the word. Don had a wonderful sense of humour, and mixed in with a bit of mischief, never failed to bring wide smiles and hearty laughs among those in his presence. A life well lived, Don will remain in our thoughts always. Vi, our deepest condolences.

There’s not enough space here to mention all the wonderful memories Don and I had over our 52 year long friendship, but I will share a little...
We first meet up at the O.P.P. office in Burlington as 2 enthusiastic young cops in 1968 where we connected immediately even though our wives labeled us as THE ODD COUPLE! We shared countless trips around the world, countless golf games together (as well as with our ERL Group of guys) and of course all our unforgettable fun cottage times at Burk’s Falls years ago and then Tremblant.
Without a doubt our kids and grandkids will miss their ‘uncle Don’ terribly and Christmases etc. just won’t be the same without him at our table...
THANK you Don for all the beautiful memories and rest assured that I will never forget you, my ‘Big Brother‘!
Vi has lost her lifelong loving partner...I have lost my lifelong best friend...but more importantly the world has lost a true GENTLE MAN!
Our deepest condolences to you dearest Vi!
Peter and Elaine (Paul, Anne and families)

Vi, Linda and I are so sorry to learn of Don’s passing. Our Walkerton days seem like so long ago but when we learned of Don’s passing all the good times come flooding back. May good memories help you through this most difficult time. Steve and Linda Walsh
