Donald Geldart passed away at the Willett Hospital in Paris on Friday May 29th in the evening time, a time of day that he would have happily watched television with tea in hand in the comfort of the family room. Don is forever remembered by his wife, Lina. He is survived by his daughter, Sybil (Steve) and four grandchildren, Madison, Joseph, Julian and Rachel.

Don worked many long and rewarding years at Graham Packaging Limited in Mississauga until retirement in 2005. His plan for retirement was to bask in the sun on a boat on the waters of Northern Ontario. He got to do that for a while, which made him grin with delight. Don spent much of his adult life, when not working at the plant, creating a serene personal home space—which we reckon gave him a satisfying existence. In our opinion, the end came too early, for he had much left to do outdoors and had many friends, neighbours and acquaintances still to talk to and laugh with. He has instead joined his departed parents, Donald and Frances Geldart.

Don will be laid to rest at Oakhill Cemetery in Brantford. In Don’s memory, donations to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada would be appreciated by the family.

Sybil, my best friend growing up, Mrs. Geldart, who always welcomed me into their home, I send my sincerest condolences to you and your extended families. I loved coming over after school and on weekends and talking with Don (Mr. Geldart to me) in the tv room of your condo in Clarkson. Please know I am thinking of you in these difficult times.
Love Nicky Campbell

As We Look Back
By Clare Jones

As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering …..
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us …..
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgment,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We’re thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us.

Uncle Don, I thank you for all that you have thought me from the time I met you.

Sybil Geldart Posted at 05:51am

From all of us, thank you for sharing this, Josie.
