Donald passed away peacefully at The Heights at Mt. View on August 7, 2018 with his best friend, Susanne, by his side and surrounded by love.
Donald was born in Victoria, BC on May 12, 1941 and spent most of his life here.
He was predeceased by his parents, Margaret and Neil MacKay. Donald is survived by siblings, Ruth Pollard (Geo), Judy Stefan (late Jake), David (Eli), Rob (Sherri) and Holly Lawless (Robert). Donald also leaves many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Donald, not surprisingly, was known as “Happy Donald” in the deaf community. He enjoyed spending time at IDHHC where he visited friends and played bingo.
Special thanks to Dr. MacKean, Susanne Harnden, Mary Warner, Pastor Gwen and the caring staff of McCauley Lodge, and the nursing team at The Heights at Mt. View.
