Wilson ReverendDonWILSON, The Reverend Don (Charles Donald)  -  With love and gratitude we celebrate the life of Don Wilson, who passed away peacefully on February 1, 2017, just after his 86th birthday, while encircled by three generations of his family.

Born in Toronto to Charles and Frances Wilson, he studied engineering at McGill and was proud to have worked on the Avro Arrow before following a call to the Anglican priesthood (Wycliffe ’60).

With his beloved partner in life and ministry, Doreen, Don served in parishes in Oshawa, Toronto, Medonte, Roches Point/Keswick, and St. Paul’s, Newmarket, with a 9-year detour into teaching high school math and physics in Stayner, Ontario. 

An aircraft fanatic, and a lover of music, photography, woodworking and bad puns, his passion for Spitfires was exceeded only by his love for his family, and above all his God.

Don’s memory is cherished by his devoted wife of 57 years, Doreen, daughters Kathy & Beverly, sons-in-law Jim Brown & Peter 'Lou' Goodwin, grandchildren Andrew & Samantha Kate Brown and Bryce & Grant Goodwin (Emma Jackson), and great-grandchildren Angus & Eliza Goodwin.

Friends will be welcomed at the Graham A. Giddy funeral home, Fergus, on Friday February 10th, from 2:00-4:00pm and 6:00-8:00pm. A funeral service will follow on Saturday February 11th at 2:00pm, at St. John’s Anglican Church, 36 Henderson St., Elora. A further celebration of his life will take place in the spring at Christ Church, Roches Point, on a date to be determined, with burial of his cremated remains in the family plot.

The family wish to offer heartfelt thanks to the staff at Wellington Terrace LTC Home in Elora, who provided exemplary and loving care in Don’s final months. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Wellington Terrace, the Parkinson Society Canada, or a charity of your choice.

'Oh!  I have slipped the surly bonds of earth… reached out my hand, and touched the face of God.'
