Donald Louis Varcoe

February 11, 1941 – June 30, 2017

It is with such sadness and broken

hearts that the family of Donnie,

as he was known by so many,

announce the passing of their

beloved Don who passed away on

June 30th with his loving family

by his side when he succumbed

to Pulmonary Fibrosis after being

diagnosed over seven years ago.

Don developed a love of golf at

a very early age and it became a

huge part of his life. He joined the

Pitt Meadows Golf Course in 1978

where he met countless wonderful friends and created so many

memories over his 39 year membership. Don also enjoyed the many

golf trips to Arizona over the last twenty years with such amazing


Don’s love of life, kindness, humour and crooked smile will forever

be in the memories of the family he leaves behind. His wife of nearly

37 years Dawn-Marese, his children, Tim, Matthew, Dana (Clif), and

Douglas. He leaves behind his six wonderful grandchildren Ava,

Caellum, Madisyn, Hudson, Atherley and Everlyn who was born a

week after Don passed away. He also is survived by his sister June.

A celebration of life will be held on August 31st at Pitt Meadows

Golf Club. Doors open at 1pm. Celebration to start at 2pm.

Life just isn’t the same without you and we will never forget someone

who gave us so much to remember.
