PEGG, Donald Chesher - April 30, 1928- March 21, 2019
In loving memory of Donald, who passed away at age 90 on Thursday, March 21, 2019.
He was married to Patricia Ann Brooks, with whom he spent many happy years living in the Greenwood community. Don and Pat loved cheering on the Blue Jays together, and supported the Greenwood United Church.
Don enjoyed making memories with his children Jeffrey (Jennifer), Kevin (Sarah) and Susan (Michael) Risebrough.
Their childhood was spent camping and road tripping across Canada. Don spent many wonderful days exploring fields and shores, searching for fascinating objects like minerals, bottles, and arrowheads.
Both Don and Pat were active in the birding community, including the Toronto Naturalists and the Pickering Naturalists.
Don's grandchildren loved him for his gentle spirit and his lively sense of humour. He is sweetly remembered by Allyson, Gillian, Graham, Heather, Megan, Hannah, and Grace.
Predeceased by cherished parents George Edward and Sara Lois, and sister Nola.
Lovingly remembered by sisters Phyllis and Gladys, Aunt Betty, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Special thanks to Monique from St. Elizabeth for her friendship and care.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, June 14, 2019 at the Mount Zion Community Centre, 230 Salem Road, Pickering at 11a.m.
If desired, a donation in memory of Don may be made to Diabetes Canada, Heart and Stroke Foundation, Mt. Zion United Church, Precious Minds, or Thickson's Woods Land Trust.
