CHALMERS, Donavon Miller
(February 4, 1921-March 5, 2008)
World War II Veteran
Don CHALMERS, husband for over 64 years of P. Jill CHALMERS (nee STINTON,) his war-bride from London, England. Father of Stephen Reagh CHALMERS and his wife Judy of Owen Sound, Margo BLANCHE and her husband Peter NEUWELT of Barrie and Lesley Anne CHALMERS and her partner Colleen ANDERSON of Toronto. Very beloved Grandpa of Mark BAZANT and his wife Angie of Australia, the parents of his first Great-grandchild Liam, and of Michael BAZANT and his partner Genvieve of Ottawa. Predeceased by his parents David and Eva (REAGH) CHALMERS, sisters Vivien McMINN, Vera VALLANCE and brother Dave of Grand Coulee, Saskatchewan. He also lives on through his niece and nephew and their families Patsy Ann Reagh McMINN of Saint Thomas and Clarence VALLANCE of Ottawa. Don was born and raised in Grand Coulee, Saskatchewan, where his predecessors were among the first settlers of Saskatchewan, and also the founders of Confederation with his maternal great uncle - Sir Charles Tupper. He signed up for World War 2 in 1939 and was shipped overseas to England where he was promoted to Sandhurst College for Officer Training. After serving in England, Holland and Italy in World War 2 with the Canadian Army Medical Corp. and then the Armoured Tank Corp., Dad brought his war bride back home and settled in London, Ontario where he completed his Batchelor's Degree at the University of Western Ontario. He went on to a long and successful career with Wyeth Canada, where he set records for sales in Southwestern Ontario. His friendly nature and humour brought him many life long Friends and acquaintances throughout the Southwestern Ontario region. In the early fifties, Don and Jill settled in Owen Sound, where they raised their 3 children. He was proud of his long relationship with the Grey and Simcoe Foresters, Knox United Church, and the infamous Friday Night Bridge Club. We shall miss his western humor and his true love of people. Thanks you to Knox United Church, the Toronto Dominion Bank and especially Summit Place where he received exceptional care and compassion. We'd also like to make known our special appreciation to Big Boots Barry, his bridge partner and Border Collie when he needed it the most. Friends may call at the Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home on Saturday March 8, 2008 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Saturday at 5 p.m. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 are requested to attend a memorial Service at the funeral home on Saturday March 8 at 2: 45 p.m. Interment in Greenwood Cemetery. Rev. Ralph SCHMIDT officiating. Memorial donations may be directed to the Alzheimer's Society of Grey Bruce, charity of your choice, or simply plant a rose in his honour. He loved his roses. Rest easy Dad. And in your famous words - Ya done good kid!
