Don was born in Englehart Ontario in October 1924. He enlisted in the Air Force when he was 18 and had his pilot wings and commission in 1943. He was shipped overseas and was part of the Burma campaign fighting the Japanese. He held various roles in the RCAF including being posted to Europe for 5 years with NATO. He finished his career as part of transport command flying all over the world in C130’s (Hercules). He retired in 1971 and returned to his home in Englehart.

So very sorry to hear of Don's passing. I'd only known Don for the past year and wish I had of met him sooner! What a sense of humour! My girls loved to visit with him and I'm sure he got a kick out of them! Good to know you, Don!
