Don devoted his life to helping others, particularly young people, and was able to make a good difference in the lives of a great number of people thanks to his kindness, lack of selfishness, and unwavering resolve. His life journey did not follow a conventional pattern, but it was never lacking in loving relationships. That could not have gone any other way in his eyes. Don’s life was heavily influenced by his religious beliefs.
He was a fervent Catholic and went to Sunday mass as frequently as he could without fail. Throughout the years, he never missed a chance to show his support for family and friends by attending wakes and funerals with them. It was a dream come true for him to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 2017, and the experience helped him develop his faith even more. After graduating from the New Brunswick Teacher’s College in 1973, he launched a fruitful teaching career in Black’s Harbour, where he was responsible for instructing middle school students and coaching a variety of sports.
