Donald WITHROW

WITHROW Donald William. Passed away on February 17, 2012 after a short illness. He was predeceased by his mother Marion Pinsent and his father Isaac Withrow. Raised and educated in Mission, he had fond memories of the rural life on Cherry Avenue in the 30’s and 40’s. After graduating from U.B.C., Don travelled in Europe and pursued an acting career in London, eventually returning in 1964 to teach French and drama at Mission Senior Secondary. In his retirement in 1984, he enjoyed reading widely, raising his dog Bear, and entertaining his friends. We remember Don’s wealth of knowledge, his curiosity, his wry sense of his humour and his generosity, and we are grateful for his friendship. A special thanks to the staffs of Maple Ridge Hospital and Christine Morrison Hospice for their professionalism and compassion. At the request of the deceased, there will be no service.
