at this sad time.
Du plus loin que je me souvienne Donald a toujours été pour moi l’exemple même du bon vivant, combatif et plein d’énergie. Que ce soit pour faire des travaux sur la ferme, faire de la mécanique sur un dune buggy ou faire la fête. S’il y a de la vie dans l’au-delà, Donald saura sûrement animer une fête avec son violon et on y retrouvera Armande, Alfred, Jeannine, André, Irène, Paul, Ronnie, Joe,…, Ti-Jean Carignan, Ti-blanc Richard,…
Mes sympathies à toute la famille,
André Beaulieu et famille

Don was a wonderful man who helped me start my working career in the dairy business. He taught me a lot. He fought a hard battle and now is at peace. So long to a good friend…I’ll miss our talks.
I’m so sorry to hear of Dons passing. We found out only yesterday, my apologies for not being there in person to offer sincere condolences.
My sincere condolences to the Blaney family. I was unaware of Don’s illness, as I have not seen him in recent years. I have fond memories of Don, from high school days onward. On many occasions, he welcomed friends to his open-air concerts, square-dance and sing-along gatherings over a campfire barbecue. Our local Canadian cowboy at heart ! Comfortable playing a guitar or a fiddle, he never failed to entertain or bring people into the fold, those who would otherwise be sitting alone on the sidelines. I thank God for his presence in our lives, and will always remember his smile. RIP my friend.
