SANDBERG, Donald Herman

May 22, 1932 - May 16, 2017

Donald (Donnie) passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family whom he loved and cherished deeply. Devotion to his family was the most important aspect of his life. He leaves behind his loving wife Barbara of 61 years, children: Sharon (Jerry), Dan (Jo-Ann), Jo-Ann (Daryl) and David. Grandchildren: Chris (Sam), Jeffrey, Melanie (Hugh), Jason (Heather), Debra, Donnie (Amanda) and Adam (Hilary). Great grandchildren: Tulia, Claire, Duncan and Caelynn. Also survived by his brother-in-law and sister-in-law Ken and Audrey Leier and his sister-in-law Marge Leier as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Don was predeceased by his parents Otto and Minerva, infant son Peter, siblings Roy, Irene, Esther and Teenie.

Don was a kind, loyal and loving husband, father, brother, grampa, great grampa and a friend to many.

He loved the outdoors, spending a great many years in it from a teenager on in the logging industry and prospecting and the latter part of his working days as a plumber. He loved camping, fishing, hunting and of course never missed an opportunity to stop and check out a rock he wanted to inspect.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM on Wednesday, May 24th at the Salvation Army Church - 1480 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna - with a tea to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Research or a charity of your choice.

    We send our condolences to Don's family. Jack knew Don from logging. He was one person that was always friendly and fun to talk to. Sandberg Forestry area up Bear Creek Main was named after him.
