SMITH, William Donald “Don”


SMITH, William Donald “Don” – April 9, 1950 – December 10, 2021. At the age of 71 years, Don passed away peacefully but suddenly at his residence in Tobermory.  He was a beloved father of Lorance and his wife Bea of Toronto, and Nicole and her husband Andrew Roynon of Burlington.  A cherished grandfather of Henry and Molly Roynon.  Dear brother of Helen (Norm Addison) of Tobermory, David (Sue) of Owen Sound, Doug (Marie) and Heather Munn (late Randy) both of Tobermory.  Predeceased by his parents Lyle and Denelda, and sister Nancy Hooey (late Joe). Don will be sadly missed by his friend Patricia Davis of Tobermory and by his many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends in the community and beyond. Don’s family wishes to extend thanks to Grey-Bruce Health Services for providing a level of care and compassion that allowed Don to remain living in a community that he dearly loved.  They would also like to thank the community as a whole – you were his friends, his coworkers, and his family.  Thank you for your support and the joy you brought to Don’s life. Don was loved for his sharp whit and endeared for his often grumpy disposition.  But beneath the façade was a tender heart which now rests at peace.  He will certainly be missed.
