DesJARLAIS, Donald Robert  - (1931 - 2020) - Passed peacefully into the presence of the Lord on Tuesday October 13, 2020.

He leaves to mourn his beloved wife Bunny (Agnes) of 68 years; his sons Brent (Paula), David (Wendy), Weldon (Liz), his many relatives & friends including a special relationship with his sister in law Florence & her family. 

Don started his business career in Winnipeg as a young man grinding coffee at the Hudson’s Bay Wholesale where he worked his way up to Branch Manager & was then promoted to Regional Manager of Eastern Ontario.

Along with having a solid work ethic he was a faithful church member who was involved in many church activities over the years. 

Don was a wonderful, loving, caring husband & father who possessed many talents including his quiet wisdom and generous heart. We will all miss him dearly.

Our thanks to the wonderful staff in the Palliative Care unit of Markham Stouffville Hospital. Special thanks Dr. Cal Doobay.

There will be a private family graveside service with Pastor Kevin Oates officiating.  

In memory of Don, donations by cheque to the Goodwood Baptist Church, #283 Highway 47 Goodwood Ontario L0C 1A0 would be appreciated by the family
