MCKERCHER, Donald "Don" -

January 1939 - November 2023


We are saddened to announce that Donald Alexander McKercher passed peacefully in his sleep on November 18, 2023, at the age of 84.

Don is survived by his best friend and beloved wife of 52 years, Ingrid McKercher, his daughter who he loved immensely, Daddy’s girl Alison (Michael) Adamowicz, and his brother Ian (Amelia) McKercher of Ottawa. He was proud grandpa of Nolan and Andrew his boys, and loving uncle to Alex and Jay.


Don will also be missed by cousins, extended family and friends.


Don had an infectious good humour. He cherished his family and friends and enjoyed celebrations of all kinds, as well as the outdoors and traveling.


He dedicated himself to hundreds of students during his 30-year teaching career. He took pride in the two cottages he built in Muskoka.


As Don would say, Is it Cocktail hour yet? Cheers!


There will be no public visitations or funeral.  A celebration of life will occur in the spring at the cottage.
