Donald Vincent MacEachern

December 23, 1930 – October 4, 2015

Canadian Pacific Railway Inspector (Retired) Donald Vincent MacEachern passed away at the Kootenay Lake Hospital on October 4, 2015.

Born in Kamloops, B.C. on December 23, 1930 to Vincent and Katherine Veronica (“Vera”) MacEachern (nee Loftus). Don is also predeceased by two brothers, Thomas and William, sister Margaret and the love of his life Dorothy Joan MacEachern (nee Shkwarok).

Don is survived by his daughter Daryn Violet MacEachern and granddaughter Sarah Grace Heibein. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins from the MacEachern-Shkwarok clans.

It was Don’s wish that there be no service. In his memory, the family would be grateful for any donations made to your local Veteran’s food bank or Legion. Don was a proud and supportive Veteran.

From the family, we would like to thank Don’s friends in Harrop-Procter for their support as well as the staff at Mountain Lake Seniors Community where he had been living for the past 7 months.

Dear Dad, Grandpa, Uncle, cousin and friend, we love you and we are going to miss you. xoxo

Megan Johnson with Thompson Funeral Service, Nelson has been entrusted with the cremation arrangements.
