With loving thoughts and heavy hearts, we announce the quiet and sudden passing of our dear husband, dad and grandpa, Don, on April 24, 2013 at the age of 80 years. Don was born November 11, 1932 at 11:00 am at Vanguard, Saskatchewan, the only child of Bill and Ida Heebner. Don spent his childhood on the farm, later becoming a grain farmer and owner of an auto parts business in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. In 1975, he retired and moved the family to Kelowna where he turned his love of carpentry into 30 years of craftsmanship. Don is survived by his wife, Colleen “Coco”, son Gary, daughter Diane Madden and partner Kelly Fix, grandsons Trevor and Stuart Madden and step-grandson Jonathan Fix, as well as a huge extended family.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at Grace Lutheran Church, 1162 Hudson Rd, Lakeview Heights in West Kelowna.
A visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday April 29, 2013 at Everden Rust Funeral Services, 1910 Windsor Road, Kelowna, B.C.
