“Don had many varied and interesting career choices in his life. He started out learning the meat cutting business as a young man and then went with his father building houses for a mining company in Northern Manitoba. He commercial fished the northern lakes as well. In 1954 he decided to come to BC and work in road construction and logging for the following 38 years. Don retired from Log Purchasing in 1994. Don always had a carpenter shop to make and repair items as needed. Many in the family have reminders of Don’s great carpenter skills. Fishing, hunting, curling, golfing, and a good game of cards was what Don enjoyed. He valued his family and friends.
