Donald Gordon Smith

August 9, 1924 – November 6, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad, Don Smith. Dad was born in Brandon Manitoba. His family moved to BC when he was just six years old. At the age of seventeen, he joined the RCAF and was stationed in Northern England. This is where he met his future bride Ethel.

In 1945, they married and moved back to BC to raise their two daughters Donna and Lynn. In 1950 Don started working for BC Hydro and in 1965 he accepted a position in 100 Mile House.

He is pre-deceased by his loving wife Ethel of 65 years; his parents Ernie & Pauline Smith; his sister Phyllis Monnon; his brother Allan Smith. Don is survived by his daughters; Donna (Peter) Wilcox, Lynn (Larry) Novakowski, his grandchildren; Lloyd Wilcox, Lorraine (Scott) Wilcox, Leanne (Darren) Bloy, Scott (Kristy) Novakowski, his great-grandchildren; Austin Bloy, Mercedes Wilcox, Taya, Molly and Joey Novakowski.

Respecting Dad’s wishes, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers please make donations In Dad’s name to the SPCA in 100 Mile House.
