Donald Eric Byers

April 24, 1951 - July 22, 2019

Tribute

BYERS, Donald Eric
1951 – 2019
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Father, Husband, Papa, Brother, Uncle, Best friend and most amazing Man, Donald Byers, on July 22nd, 2019, with his family around him.
Don as he liked to be called, passed far too soon at the age of 68 after a brief battle with cancer. He will be at peace now with his Father Norman & Mother Rose, along with his one and only dog Ginger.
Don will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his wife Dolores, his children Dustin, Melissa, (Joel), & Brenton, (Sammie). His grandchildren Aiden, Parker, Nixon, Finley (mother Erin) & Cassidy. His brother David (Gail), mother-in-law Laura, along with many niece’s & nephew’s, extended family & lots of friends, especially his best friend John.
Don made friends with everyone he met, he was a loving, caring, jolly, happy but extremely stubborn man with a heart of gold. When he found out about his illness, it never stopped him from giving his family the best trip, filled with the most memorable moments. We will be forever grateful for that time we all had with him and making Don’s bucket list trip to Antigua in the Caribbean happen.
A celebration of life will be held on August 9th, 2019 at 2:00 pm, at Arbutus
Ridge Golf Course, 3515 Telegraph Road, Cobble Hill.

Don was a great man, with a great soul. He was always so pleasant when he’d come into work to see Dustin

From: Jeannie Cosgrove (nee Mackenzie)
Relation: High school friend

I remember fondly, Don’s cheery contributions to our Grade 9 & 10 classes. The teachers probably didn’t appreciate his humour but he added much levity to our school days.

From: Margaret Goosney
Relation: Friend

Thinking of you today, Delores. Sincere sympathy and prayers for your partner and best friend. Take good care of yourself.

From: Al and Pam Teasdale ( Trythall)
Relation: Friend

Our condolences, Dolores and family. We were unable to attend the service last Friday, but were there in spirit. Don was a neighbour growing up and a friend all through his school years in Oak Bay. We remember his easy going, friendly ways. Sincerely, Al and Pam

My belated sympathies particularly to Dave and Gail. While Bill was in the cancer clinic we thought we saw Don there. Unfortunately we were proved correct. Bill also lost his battle in June. They do leave a huge space in our lives don’t they. Love and memories, Liz Wharf
