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.
