He was born on September 12th 1933 to Russell and Ruth Down.

Beloved husband of the late Phyllis Duff (1989).

He will be lovingly and proudly remembered by his two daughters, Karen (Eric), & Patty (Raymond).

Cherished Grandpa to Jessica, Jenna, Taylor, Kirsten & Gregory.

He will be missed by his many nieces, nephews, family and friends. 

Donald's family wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the wonderful staff at the Village of Taunton Mills, for their compassionate care of Dad for the past few years. 

A sincere thank you to the health care team of the Palliative Care Unit at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
