Donald Edward Small
Jan. 3, 1930 – Feb. 26, 2016
Our dear father and husband Donald Edward Small passed away peacefully on Friday morning at Lady Minto Hospital.
Loved by all who knew him. He was a busy man in his younger years, working in the trades and moving from Vancouver to White Rock to Victoria and then on to Salt Spring.
In the late seventies, he and his wife Mary opened the Vesuvius Pub (which his old friends will remember). One of Don’s pleasures was his involvement with the Royal Canadian Legion.
He is survived by his four sons, who made him very proud, Jay, Peter, Chris and Matt and their respective partners and our dear friend and “daughter” whom he loved dearly, Lesley Cheeseman.
He loved being a Grandpa to his seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank the incredible staff at Extended Care for their kindness and care of our dear old Dad. In lue of flowers, donations to the new garden at Extended Care would be appreciated.
A wake will be held on April 2nd, 2pm at the Royal Canadian Legion.
