DONALD JOHN STEPHEN MACKEY
Mercifully on Sunday, September 15, 2013 Donald John Stephen Mackey passed into eternal peace after a long battle with many varied health issues.
Don’s memory will be cherished by his family both near and far. We all will mourn his passing but do not be sad for he is finally free.
Dad was employed by Canada Post in many different positions during the time he worked there. He was a patron of the Arts. Being an accomplished artist his artwork is enjoyed in homes and offices around the world. In his younger years Dad delighted in playing Bass and tenor drums with different Pipe bands. He was most happy spending time with family and friends.
We would like to express our gratitude to the teams of healthcare professionals who treated dad with dignity and compassion daily allowing us to keep dad home with us as long as possible…prime, homecare, and finally the staff at the Health Sciences Centre and Grace Hospital for giving us five more years of Dad’s company than expected.
In compliance with Don’s wishes there will not be a Funeral Service.
Dad was very proud of his three grandson’s appreciation and Mastery of Highland Arts and as such indicated in lieu of flowers donations be sent to The Lord Selkirk Boys Pipeband, C/O C&R Stankey, 161 St. Anthony Avenue, Winnipeg, MB. R2V 0R6.
