Don worked for Canada Bread in the early 1950's, which he enjoyed thoroughly. He spoke often of his experiences & the wonderful families he met through those years. He then joined the Metropolitan Life Insurance as an agent & manager in the late 1950's where he repeatedly was the number one agent in Ontario.
Don's greatest gift was his voice which he shared through the Guardian Angels Choir for 52 years. Don will be remembered for his humour, laughter and the love he had for his family. The laughter will continue as we talk of Don and all the wonderful memories.
