Wally passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health, Oshawa on Thursday, June 24, 2021. 

Son of the late Harold and Doreen Donaldson.

Wally most recently worked at Rockburne Bros. for several years where he took much pride in accommodating and caring for every one of his clients. 

However, his pride and joy throughout his life was his significant involvement with the Sporting Community of Durham Region.

The many aspects of his career, first as a Sports writer, then Sports Editor of the Oshawa Times and colour commentating for the Oshawa Generals, allowed Wally to meet and acquire many longtime friends and acquaintances at every level of sport throughout the years. 

RIP Wally, you did a good job.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, August 24 from 4 - 8 p.m., at the Oshawa Curling Club, 226 Bond Street East.

Arrangements entrusted with MOUNT LAWN FUNERAL HOME & CEMETERY, Whitby.
