In Loving Memory

Donald Elwood Eddy

We celebrate the life of Donald Elwood Eddy of Kamloops,

Don was born on November 22nd, 1943, in Kincaid Saskatchewan and he passed away at the age of 80 on December 4th, 2023.

He was one of 6 children born to Lee and Clara Eddy: Lionel Eddy (Fran), Gordon ‘Maynard’ Eddy, Loretta Farmer, Max Eddy (Marilyn), Roger Eddy (Glenda).

Don had a total of 7 children and 6 grandchildren throughout his lifetime: Duane, Wanda-Grandson Alexander, Darla (Clayton)-Grandsons Lane, and Cole,

Michael, Yvonne (André)-Granddaughters Hailey (Oliver) and Brooke,

Jennifer, Skye-Granddaughter Pursayes.

Don spent his working life as a millwright and was a man of many skills that were developed throughout a lifetime of experiences. He earned the nickname ‘Steady Eddy’ from his devotion and focus to his work.

He found peace perfecting his garden and spending time fishing, and in his later years with his beloved dog Charley.

He was a man of his own faith and lived by his own understanding of the universe and all its workings.

If you had the opportunity to know Don on a personal level, you would understand what a truly unique and special person he was.

A special thank you to Dr Thomasse, the medical team, and the compassionate staff of Kamloops Trinity Hospice.

    The world must have breathed a sigh of relief when we supposedly grew up! Lots of great memories from the farm, friends and family.
    Will miss you but you will remain in my heart and thoughts.

    I’ll always remember how much fun Uncle Donny was when I’d see him on our family trips to BC. He seemed to always be smiling and would give the warmest hugs and say “Maxie’s girl. How are you doing sweetheart?” My dad and his brother had a special bond too, always laughing and reminiscing about the past. It made me happy how much their life growing up on the farm with their family meant to them. Uncle Donny will be missed by all. ♥️🙏
