Donald worked for Moore’s Business forms for almost 40 years. until retirement.  His love of people and their many different personalities were always evident when he shared his stories from work.

He loved his family; each member meant the world to him, and they knew it. He had a deep love of the outdoors and hunted with his core group of buddies near Ninette, MB. 

In later years he enjoyed spending time in his yard, loved gardening, feeding the birds in his backyard, or just going for a car ride somewhere outside the city.

 He was a great friend to many. Always had a good story to tell. Always wanted to put a smile on the faces around him. He always saved a good joke for the next time you saw him.
