1932 – 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donald on March 3, 2016 in Vernon, BC. Donald was born in Seattle, Washington and moved to Canada where he settled in Chilliwack, BC. He soon after married his wife Barbara in 1954. They made their way up north to Kitimat in 1972 where Donald worked in the Alcan Smelter and upon retirement, they moved to Enderby where they’ve resided for the past 20 years. He joined the PPCLI Army where he went on two tours during the Korean war. Donald loved his family and enjoyed travelling, fishing, hunting, painting, and had a soft spot for animals.
He is lovingly remembered by his wife Barbara of Enderby; daughters: Joan Coburn of Vernon, BC, Sheila (Tony) Fogg of St. John, NFL; son: Robert Fogg of Surrey, BC; grandchildren: Kevin and Bill Coburn; sister: Pauline Hodgson; brother: Robert Fogg; and many extended family and friends. A family celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Donald’s name to the SPCA (4800 Haney Road, Vernon, BC V1T 6M2) or the Vernon Jubilee Hospital (2102 32 Street, Vernon, BC V1T 5L2). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
