Triste d’apprendre le décès de Don. Mon mari et moi garderons un souvenir d’une bonne personne avec qui nous avons eu beaucoup de bon temps. Il y a des gens que l’on oublie jamais Don en fait partie. Don était avant tout un homme pour qui sa famille comptait beaucoup. Il est allé rejoindre sa bien-aimée Jolene.

Dear Brent, Craig, Kirk, & Tracey,
My family and I offer our deepest sympathy to all of you and your families. We remember The ‘Robinsons’ as a very close family and we’ve always admired that of you and your collective commitment to the farm, fun times and each other. I always remember waiting for you to ‘finish your chores’ before we could play volleyball, Pictionary or head out to the lake. These values carry on through you and your families. Don and Joelen had a profound impact on my youth which helped shape who I am. I’ve shared this news with my family, and from our family to your, we offer our most sincere condolences. With love from the Van Vliets: Kim, Karen, Kevin, Keith and Sheelagh.

You have our deepest sympathy. Karen (Van Vliet) Tripp

Toutes nos condoléances

Although our mind can understand how (and possibly why) we lose our loved ones, the loss of lo a parent, a grandparent, or a friend always hurts, and our heart goes out to you and all those who were close to Don.
Please receive our deepest sympathies.

Don was a wonderful man,
we met him at square dance and his “joie de vivre” was contagious. Always the first one to reach out to others, he leaves us with joyful and beautiful memories. He was a wealth of information and had the talent to communicate it along with the generosity to share it. (I vividly remember him telling us about a secret treasure of stolen british pay possibly buried somewhere on the US side).

We hope that the show of support from family and friends will bring you comfort.

kindest regards

Ron & Judith from square dance

Overwhelmed to learn such terrible news

was such a big part of my adult hood, with New years eve skating and meeting after to bring in New Year and of course Canada Day. Now that my kids are grown . Well I am extremely sad

Hello Tracy, Kirk, Craig, Brent, i was very saddened to hear of the passing of your dad. I have a lot of fond memories of curling against Don at the Lacolle and Ormstown curling clubs. I even got to spare for him at the national firefighters championship in Valleyfield. He was always so much fun to be around at curling events. I learnt not to ever bet against him that he could not eat a whole lemon pie, i think that cost me a beer. He was a great friend and i will miss him a lot. PS I am sorry that i will be unable to attend his funeral but i will be thinking of him. I will be making a donation in his honour to the Odelltown Church.
