We Remember

van SANTEN, Donald

October 23, 1962 — June 25, 2024

After a long battle dealing with a broken body and debilitating pain, brother Donald Clarence died peacefully at home in Kelowna last Tuesday, June 25, 2024, aged 61. We grieve at his leaving, but we are relieved that his suffering is over.

Life was never the same for Don after a pickup truck took him out on his Harley, back in the mid-90s. He spent years convalescing under the nurturing care of mama Ria until her death in 2014, then supported by remaining family to the end. In accordance with his wishes, Don will be cremated at the Springfield Funeral Home without ceremony.

Rest in peace Don.

Don’s spirit joins those of his father, Cornelis, and his mother, Maria. He leaves behind his brother, Robert, and sister-in-law, Leslie.
