Donald Gordon Enok McPhadyen
We regret to advise of the sudden and unexpected death of Donald Gordon Enok McPhadyen on 18 September 2018 at his home in Ladner, BC.
Born in Vancouver, BC in 1935, Don was a lifelong Ladner resident. In his youth he served in the Militia with the 7th Field Engineer Regiment, Royal Canadian Engineers and the Delta Police Department (Reserve) but soon realized that his love was driving. So he became, and was until the day he passed, a Professional Driver. He worked for years for Ladner Transfer, then Gull Transport and eventually at the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. His later years were with Felix Farms where he looked forward to every harvest.
Don's favorite pastimes were his service work, camping, hunting, and talking with friends. As a community volunteer he worked tirelessly and was respected among his peers. He served in various capacities within the community and outlying districts including the Royal Canadian Legion Delta Branch #61, Peach Arch Zone, New Chelsea Society, Amos Gordon Ferguson Memorial (Housing) Society, Kinsmen Rehabilitation Fund, Kinsmen Club of Ladner/Tsawwassen, K-40 Club of Ladner/ Tsawwassen, Pacific Open Heart Society, McKee Senior's Society and the United Way.
A Celebration of Don's life will be held on Saturday, 20 October 2018 from 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM at the Ladner Community Centre, 4734 51st Street in Ladner, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Delta Hospital, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be offered at Delta Funeral Home .
