Our deepest sympathy to Donna, Greg, Guy and family: We have many wonderful memories of enjoyable times spent with Donna and Don on our visits to the west coast. Don was always fun to spend time with. We know that the past few years have been difficult ones for you all and Donna, you have been such an amazing wife and caregiver - just incredible really how much you were able to support Don staying at home. We are sorry we cannot be there in person to offer our support in this most difficult time but we send our love, prayers and hugs to you all as you bid farewell to such a great guy! We will be thinking of you on Saturday. Love, Bruce and Cam (Toronto)

I have so many fond and fun memories of Uncle Don. Some of my favorite memories include getting a ride in his Porsche, or running around the the DuBois backyard and jumping onto the waterbed mattress he blew up for the kids, or ice skating on their porch because he turned it into a skating rink, and so many more. Even though so many of these memories were so long ago, that is the Don I remember and I will miss him.

Don was always smiling, and always seemed to have a project on the go. One memory that sticks out is the fact that he let us drive his Porsche to our high school graduation!

Don was like a 2nd father who with Greg taught me to golf and lay hardwood floors! Many happy memories! May you Rest In Peace and watch over us before it is our time to join you on the heavenly golf course above!
