Donald Ulmer


Don Ulmer passed away suddenly Tuesday, May, 22, 2007, at home in his garden. He was a loving husband, companion, and best friend to Frankie. Left to love his precious memory are his children Darcy, Donald (Lynn), Carra, Robert (Heather), Sandra (Tom), Brenda (Rob), Gerry (Mike), sister Ruth (Tom) and many cherished grandchildren. We will miss him immeasurably!

Don had a never ending love, generosity and giving for his beloved wife, children and extended

family. He will leave an empty space in all our hearts.
