It is with deep sorrow and much love that we announce the passing of Donald “Don” Hackwell of Kelowna, BC, on February 26, 2023 at the age of 68.
Don was born on November 6, 1954 in Port Alberni, BC, to his parents Walter and Wilma Hackwell. He spent his early childhood growing up on Sproat Lake with his parents and two brothers, Bob and Cal.
In 1967, Don moved to Kelowna with his family, where he made many lifelong friends and enjoyed the remainder of his life. His passions included boating, swimming, biking, camping, quadding, fishing, skiing, travelling, and spending time in the great outdoors.
Don was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, papa, and friend. He treasured the time he spent with his family and friends and embraced every moment with them.
Don will be lovingly remembered and forever cherished by his wife Tami; mother Wilma; brothers, Bob (Pat) & Cal (Evie); children, Barb (Jared) and Christina (Cam); grandchildren, Kayli, Meghan, Amber, Brennen and Daniel; great-grandson, Zachary; nephews, Shane, Christopher, Jordan, Justin, Shaun, Brandon, Ian, and Blair; as well as numerous family members, friends, and colleagues.
