He is preceded in death by his mothers, Laura and Anna Munro; his father, Lindon Munro; and his brothers, Roland and Robert Munro.

He left high school at age 15 after his mother died to take of his brothers. Don was machinist for 50 years in the auto industry and retired at age 75. He loved working. He was a member of Elks Lodge 71 for over 20 years, where he was a Loyal Knight three times.

There are so many great memories of Uncle Don and know that he will be dearly missed here in MI. I personally always loved & adored the MUNRO family reunions when he & Rose would come to visit. Uncle Don has one of those voices, smiles & sense of humor we will never forget.

May you RIP Uncle Don & say hi to ALL our dear loved ones up in heaven.

Much love xo

FIRST bond

July 31, 2020

I'm Joycie - Donald's cousin - he is greatly loved by all of us. He was like another big brother as I was growing up - and he took care of our Aunt Laura until she passed and then loved Aunt Anna who was his step-mother and her five children. What wonderful, happy times those were - he even let us drive his car occasionally - our parents ddn't know. I pray for Rosie and the family - she was the perfect wife for him and she was so good to all of us. RIP sweet, gentle man - we'll party hard when we all get up there with the rest of you. All my love
