In 1942 the family returned to Chilliwack and in 1946 they moved back to the family farm at Hazlet. Following his high school years, Don worked at various construction jobs before starting work with SaskPower in 1957. In 1996, Don retired from SaskPower having enjoyed over 39 years building power lines and operating special equipment (mostly in the Weyburn region). It was at SaskPower where he became affectionately known as "Moose" by many of his co-workers and friends. Don's many interests in life included photography (he never went anywhere without a camera), international politics (especially of the Middle East), country and old time dance music, polkafests, traveling the Saskatchewan country side looking for the perfect picture, looking after his yard and garden, driving big trucks whenever the opportunity presented itself, and mastering the computer (where he spent countless hours the past several years). Don also had a special appreciation for the creativity and talent of Saskatchewan's artists and artisans, who he met and befriended at numerous arts and craft shows he so loved to attend. During the 1970's, Don served on the Executive of the Weyburn Molson Canadians fastball and Weyburn PanCanadian Beavers hockey clubs. Many words describe Don outgoing, forthright, organized, positive, and thoughtful to name just a few. He loved meeting people and making new friends wherever he went. Don's greatest pride and joy in life were his two sons, Shawn and Troy. Don's request was for cremation and no funeral service. A private family interment will take place at a later date. The family thanks Don's many friends and care-givers for their care, compassion, help and support over the past few difficult months with special thanks to the wonderful staff at Tatagwa View (House 1) and to the Sun Country Palliative Care Team.
