It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Donald on Sunday, September 27, 2020 at the age of 61. Born December 30, 1958 to his cherished parents: Jean-Louis & Emma Gagnon (née Wettring). Donald was a devoted father and will lovingly be remembered by his daughter and best friend Alyssa (daughter to Marlyne), dear brother to Allan (Lori) and Gary (Suzanne), cherished godfather to Rose Katherine Wettring and Koroy Dobson and his nephew Jonathan. He will be missed dearly by his aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
Donald will be remembered for his big heart, his love of the outdoors and for his story telling. Don was always able to make us laugh” and let’s not forget his love for the “HABS”.
