Donald Wallace Ostrom

13 July, 195017 April, 2021

As the early sunrise rose it seemed brighter as a new angel was added to its brightness to shine over his family and friends.

Donald passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 17, 2021 in his 71st year in the comfort of his home. Beloved husband to Debbie Fetter-Ostrom, loving father to Nicole (Ryan) Lancaster, step-father to Simon (Renee) Walmsley, Shirley (Kevin) Walmsley, Mark (Kate) Fetter, Lisa (Dave) Durocher. Proud and doting “Papa Don” to Harmony, Shyla and Alden Lancaster, Derrick, Darrien and Dakota Walmsley, James and Sean Durocher. Dearest brother to Greg (Jodi) and Janice Ostrom. Predeceased by his first wife Anne (2004). Don will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his extended family and friends.

Don was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion – Galt Branch 121. He was a man who truly enjoyed the simple things that life had to offer, a game of Snooker or Bridge with friends or a long walk on the beach of Point Clark - These things brought Don joy and peace. He was never happier than when he was with his grandchildren. Whether a quick visit or time spent playing together, Don was a proud Grandfather and cherished the time spent with his grandkids.

Due to the restrictions surrounding COVID-19, there will be no public services at this time.

As expressions of sympathy, donations made in Don’s memory to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.

A very special thank you to Cambridge Memorial Hospital oncology, hematology and the palliative care team of nurses for all of the care and compassion you’ve shown Don and our family.
