Donald Yaeck (1947-2020)
Donald passed away after a long battle with heart disease at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket on September 12th surrounded by his family. He was known for his funny tales and wicked sense of humour. There are many tales of things that he had done and pranks he had pulled in his remarkable life. Most of the tales are true and ones that are untrue are clearly untrue and cannot be proven in any court of law.
We would like to thank all the friends, relatives and people that helped us over the years. His healthcare providers, personal support workers and nurses were fantastic providing care to him and support to us. We would like to express our gratitude to Comfort Keepers and the ICU team at Southlake.
We will miss Don greatly. We might even miss buckets of cold water thrown over the shower curtain. A small celebration of life will be held at the Yaeck house on Sunday September 20th between 1 to 4 p.m. If you would like; one of Don’s favorite charities was Covenant House. Thank you for everything, take care of each other and when possible spread some joy; or cold water.

Dear Judith & family,
Every so often I peruse the Fawcett’s obituaries from out here on the prairie, and this evening, I stumbled across this one. I do hear from a few folks in the Creemore area, but had not realized that Don had died. I recall a wonderful feast of lobster at your table and no small amount of laughter & good conversation. Take good care of yourself, Judith. It’s hard to lose a partner.
It sounds as though you & your family were a wonderful support to Don through his illness. May you be safe & well, and find comfort in your family.
