MacDonald, Donald Cameron


Passed away at his home, with his family by his side, on Saturday, November 2, 2019. Loving husband, for 68 years, to Elaine Ann (née Hinds), whose devoted care sustained him. Loving father to: David (Barbara Thompson), Donnie (Patricia McKnight), Andrew (Eleanor Gang) and Mary (Len Kocher). Predeceased by his son Alan, parents Murdoch and Mary Belle (nee Cameron), loving sisters Isabel, Claire Grace, Cathy Farrel, and brothers Rodney and John.

His legacy continues through his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Laura (Trevor Pickering), Luke, Michael (Ceria); Ryan MacDonald, Kali; Sarah Thalassinos (Jimmy), Livianna, Jonathan Donald, Alexandra; and Ilana and Cameron MacDonald. Gratitude is expressed to his devoted nieces Cathy, Corinne and Kim, and Sue, friend of Alan. Don will also be sadly missed by his sister-in-law, Marjorie Muller and his brother-in-law Norman Hinds.

Don was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. A millwright by trade, Don could repair anything and always found creative solutions to problems. He and Elaine encouraged their children in the pursuit of higher education. Don practised true Christian charity in everything he did. He loved the Toronto Blue Jays and watching golf, when he could no longer play. He and Elaine enjoyed many winters of their retirement in Florida.

Special thanks to his caregivers provided by LHIN - Bayshore nurses Kelly and Cathy and Care Partners Chantel, Patricia, Krista and Jacqui; the staff at Guelph General Hospital and the many others who made Don comfortable.

We were saddened by the news of the passing of Don MacDonald. We have known his daughter Mary for many years and she always spoke so lovingly of him. He sounded like a wonderful man and cherished father.
Our condolences. We hope that your memories soon bring you more smiles than tears.
