Obituary of Don Grovestine
Having bravely and stoically navigated the head winds of cancer, determined to celebrate his 80th birthday just this past month, Don is now sailing the seas of heaven, and enjoying all the seafood he can eat! A true sailor at heart, our warm-hearted yet unflappable Skipper Don | Dad | Grampie will be deeply missed by his First-mate of 55-years “Honerz” (Wendy); his Helmsman and Navigator “Guyz” (Steven; and Andrew, with his First-mate Leda), and his young, talented and capable deckhands (Ava, and Max). Not to mention the many Belleville, Toronto, and Victoria Captains & Crews befriended over the years; plus his Maritimer family – siblings Dale (& family) and Eric; Charlotte and the Shelburne, Nova Scotia clan. A special sailors’ salute to Dr. Stuart Marshall and the Victoria Hospice staff! A remembrance Sailpast in celebration of Don will be held this coming Wednesday, August 10, 1400-1600 at the Victoria Delta hotel. The Commodore’s salute (with brief ceremony) will start at 1500 sharp! Landlubbers and salty captains & crew alike are all welcome!
