He is predeceased by his parents Aate (Len) and Lillian Wahamaa.

Don will be sadly missed by his nieces, nephews and cousins. He will be especially missed by his devoted pets Violet and Dex.
Don loved music and playing his guitar. He loved nature and being outdoors with his golden retrievers. Solving technical problems and working on construction projects were a source of great joy. You could always find him working on many projects at home and camp. He was an active member of the “set build team” with his local theatre group Onstage Uxbridge. Don spent his working years with IBM Canada.
Special thanks for the love and support of friends especially June and Norm MacLeod and Gay and Mike Shanahan.
