One thought on “Obituary for Donald Boone

  • Don had a smile for everyone and was a caring, generous neighbour to so many. He was a neighbourhood ‘Garden Angel’ and ‘Snow Angel’. One blustery Boxing Day, he began clearing driveways on the street and just kept at it until the gas in his snow blower ran out. No doubt he cleared the properties of several people he didn’t even know.

    Don will be remembered with great respect and appreciation. Our sincere condolences to you, Betty, and to all your family.

    Lesley Donald and family
