KRAUSE, Donald - Peacefully at Victoria Hospital on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, Donald Bruce ‘Don’ Krause of Rondeau in his 82nd year. Beloved husband for 57 years of Sharon. Loving father of Cheryl, Kelly (Steve), Michael (Michele), Michele (Dave) and Jeff (Julie). Dear Grandfather of Jason, Jenna, Jonathan, Benjamin, Alexa, Lauren, Hunter, Sam, and Maddie. Brother of Helen Martin, Margaret Shillington, Jack Krause, and Mary Ellen Namtu.
Don will be fondly remembered for his easy going nature, his story-telling, and his great sense of humour. After 25 years as a Foreman at Labatt’s, he and Sharon retired to Rondeau in 2000. He loved the outdoors, and enjoyed fishing, duck hunting, building bird houses and a great game of euchre! Most of all, he loved spending time with his family and friends.
A celebration of Don’s life will be held at Willow Ridge Golf and Country Club, 439 Chatham Street South, Blenheim on April 8, 2017 from 2-4 pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Kidney Foundation of Canada would be appreciated.
