Donald Oliver Stevens

Feb. 12. 1927 – Jan. 27, 2015

Donald passed away at Lady Minto Hospital, Salt Spring Island, on Tuesday, January 27th at the age of 87 years.

Beloved husband for 66 years of Kathleen Louisa Alice (Kit) of Salt Spring Island. Dear father of Lesley, Kay (Brian), Jim (Bev) and Amanda (Tom). Loving grandfather of Elizabeth, Georgina, Ben, Lindsay, Daniel, Erin, Christine and D’arcy. Great-grandfather to Kinley, Ruby, Henry, Aidan, Emma, Kayden, Lily and Mason. Dear brother of Douglas Stevens (Kathy)and cousin of Joan Phippen in England.

Don served with the Royal Horse Artillery in Palestine, the Metropolitan Police Force, London, England and the RCAF.

Born in England, Don and Kit immigrated to Canada in 1955. They have happily called Salt Spring home since 1991. Don was active in the community, including the South Salt Spring Seniors, and the Beddis Water Works and was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion #92. He had many wonderful friends.

Our family wishes to thank Dr. Paula Ryan and the Kings Lane Clinic doctors and staff, who cared for Dad, Mum and us with much compassion and expertise. Thank you to Karen from Home Care and the staff at Lady Minto, who were both amazing.

A celebration of Don’s life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Salt Spring SPCA, as an expression of sympathy.
