Donald worked for 30 years at Brunswick Smelting as a security supervisor and was also a lobster fisherman for nearly 50 years. After his retirement, he enjoyed cutting firewood on his woodlot, afternoon naps and evenings spent hanging out with his buddies at the store. He loved to spend weekends at the rink watching his grandkids play hockey. Most of all, he loved spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, they kept him young and full of life.
Donald will be remembered by many for his big smile and contagious laugh.
