MacMillan, Donald 'Don' Dwain

April 20th, 2019

With profound sadness, the family of Don MacMillan (age 87) announces his peaceful passing in London, Ontario on Saturday, April 20, 2019.

Devoted husband of the late Irene MacMillan (Campbell), and loving father of Eric MacMillan, Shari Ferguson, Alison Caldwell (Duncan) and Kirk MacMillan. Dearest grandfather of Julia and Alexi MacMillan.

Don always put family ahead of career. Nevertheless, he retired as a director of the Department of Public Works in Ottawa, Canada.

First and foremost, Don loved his wife and family. He was an avid loyal sports fan and athlete in his day. Friends and family loved his humour and his joy of life. Don was never short on a witty response, joke or political banter. He was smart, strong, thoughtful, accepting, kind and honourable.

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Don are asked to consider the Ottawa Eye Institute or London Ivey Eye Institute.
