Obituary

Obituary for Don Mowry

Mowry, Donald Thomas– With unparalleled strength and bravery of spirit, Don passed away at 73 years old, in Peterborough on Friday, November 15, 2019. He was surrounded with a circle of love by the blended family he had brought together. Beloved Dad of Shelly (Gareth) and Grandpa to Jayden. Predeceased by his sister Linda McKnight and will be dearly missed by Jim McKnight and his family. As evidence of his great capacity to love and impact on others, Don will be dearly missed by former wife Carol Mowry and predeceased wives Marlene Mowry and Margaret McCaughey and their families including all the grandchildren, great grandchildren, daughters and son-in-laws. Don had many dear friends in Durham Region, Kawartha Lakes and beyond. Although we cannot list all by name, each held a special place in his heart. A man that was larger than life yet so down to earth. It is hard to believe he has left us. We are grateful for the exceptional care and support of the Palliative Care Unit at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre. A Celebration of Don’s Life will be held on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Celebrations, 35 Lindsay Street North, Lindsay. In lieu of flowers, donations in Don’s name to Canadian Lung Association would be greatly appreciated through Mackey Funeral Home, 33 Peel Street, Lindsay or online at www.mackeys.ca.

Our deepest sympathies and condolences to Don's family.
I was shocked and saddened to see Don's obituary.... When he decided to sell the "Sausage cart" it was a bitter sweet time for me as I was going to miss him dearly. He always greeted me with a smile and ALWAYS had something nice to say. And I was happy to hear that he was prioritizing his world in hopes to spend more time with his family.
I really hope that Don was able to fulfill his goal.... Don was a lovely man and he made a difference in my world.

Donny, the world will be a less jovial place without you. Your smiling face and sense of humor will be so sadly missed. It didn't seem so long ago that I was Master of Ceremonies for you and Marlene, and so much has happened since then. Rest in peace my friend.
Marie, Larry & family.
