Peacefully on Wednesday January 9, 2019 at Milton District Hospital at the age of 91 years. Beloved husband of Joyce (nee Davies) for 66 years. Loving father of Neil (Laurie), Julian (Colleen) and Matthew (Taew). Sadly missed by his grandchildren Samantha, Nicholas, Kyle and Sean Hayward. Predeceased by his siblings Walter (Joyce) Mewett and Jean (Danny) Miller.
Donald was born in Southwark, London, England in 1928 and lived with his family in Kent and Gloucestershire. He served with the Royal Air Force following the Second World War, stationed in the Far East (Singapore). After immigrating to Canada with Joyce in 1953, Donald worked in the graphic design and advertising business and was active in community service with the former Milton Planning Board, local Red Cross, Milton Historical Society and St. Paul’s United Church. Donald enjoyed travelling and spending time with his family at his cottage on Twelve Mile Bay.
Donald’s family would like to acknowledge and express their sincere gratitude for the exceptional care he received from the dedicated staff at Allendale Long Term Care Home, Milton District Hospital, Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, and Trillium Mississauga Hospital.
The family will receive relatives and friends on Friday January 18, 2019 from 2 pm to 4 pm and 7 pm to 9 pm. A private family service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Milton District Hospital Foundation would be appreciated
