I’m saddened to hear of Dons passing and for his loss to his family. Don truly had energy to spare and poured it into his stage presence in every production he was involved in. My condolences ……Jan
I am so sad to hear of Don’s passing. Oh dear! He was “front and centre” talent and joy to work with during his years in Young Canadians. I can still see him in “Boogie “Down” in the 1989 YC Act. May he Rest In Peace. With special memories and condolences to his family. Margot
I knew Don when we were both sharing some of our best years in our early twenties! I often think of when we recorded "The Power of Love" ( Huey Lewis ) in a small recording booth in Vancouver when we were out there performing with the Young Canadians for the Grey Cup. We became friends, I believe, on that trip. For 3 or 4 years I spent a lot of time with Don. He was always positive and encouraging to others, his laugh was infectious, and he LOVED performing. He was fun to be around. That's how I remember him. I am sorry our lives took us in different directions and I am so sad to hear of his passing. Although I haven't seen Don for more than 20 years, I want his family to know that he was a part of my life and is and always will be part of my memories - good memories - and I know many more people can say the same! Don - you are and will forever be a part of my story and you will be missed.
"The power of love is a curious thing, make a one man weep, make another man sing!" Today I weep ...
Miss you Don,
So sad to hear this news. I always enjoyed performing with Don. My sincerest condolences to Don's family.
My heart is sad to hear of Don's passing. May the Grace of God help you in the difficult time and offer comfort. John and I pray for you all and send condolences. Don will be remembered by his smile and quick wit. Love, Michelle and John MacKenzie
As an old school mate of Donald’s, I will always remember his positivity and sense of humour. Don was so gracious the time we got together in Las Vegas and he gave my husband and I free tickets to his shows. I will remember him fondly and am thinking of his loved ones during this most difficult of times.
