He will be sadly missed by his many nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews.

Donnie lived a life filled with joy and love but also of hardships. His hope, strength and humour helped him push through. He loved to make people laugh with his quick wit. Donnie aka "MacGyver" was always thinking of ways to make things easier. He loved to cook and share his food with others. He had a passion for sketching, and loved to go biking and fishing.
There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date. If you wish to make a donation in memory of Donnie please donate to a cause close to your heart or the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
