MacPHEE, Donald Currie MacPhee - September 23, 1958 - October 15, 2022
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Don MacPhee following complications from cancer.
He will be deeply missed by his wife Christine and children Michael (Maryann) and Meghan (Charlie).
Cherished Grandad of his favourite gems, Grayson and Emma.
Don was born in Goderich, Ontario to Harold and Helen MacPhee, Brother to Yvonne Pentland (Ron predeceased), Grant (Joan), Jerry (Shirley) and Sister-in-law Betty MacPhee (Bruce predeceased); Brother-in-law to Carol (Michael Brady predeceased), Kathy and Ted Brown and Jim and Catherine Brady.
Don was a much-loved Uncle and Great Uncle to many nieces and nephews.
He is remembered by his grandchildren for his kindness and generosity of his time and skills. Recently, they were most impressed by his ability to drive a go-cart, fix bikes and his love of Disney.
Don was born into a car family with his father being one of the first Volvo Dealers in Canada.
Don attended the University of Western Ontario where he earned a business degree and was also a licensed technician. Don’s career path took him to Mazda Canada where he had a long and successful career, retiring as the Director of Parts and Service Operations. He loved his time at Mazda and in particular his trips to Irvine, California and Japan.
His favourite travel companion was his wife, Chris. Together they had many great adventures, including a recent trip to Scotland where Don went to trace his roots on the Isle of Islay. His other favourite spot was his home in Fort Myers, Florida where he put his best efforts into trying to master the games of golf and pickle ball.
Don was the ultimate kind soul and was always willing to help. He could always find the value and the good in everyone and everything, hence his inability to throw anything away. He leaves behind many, many items in his basement which nobody has any idea what to do with.
In lieu of flowers please donate in his memory to charities that are important to you.
A Celebration of Life will be held at The Royal Ashburn Golf Club, 995 Myrtle Rd. W. Whitby, ON, on Friday October 28th, 2022 from 1:00-3:00pm.
