Donald (Don) Leroy Golden passed away on April 19, 2022, in Creston, BC, at the age of 87 years.
Don was born on July 22, 1934, in Good Hope, AB to parents Adeline and Leroy Golden. He was a mechanic all throughout his life while raising his family in Golden and later moving to Lavington. In his younger years, he loved to square dance. Don moved to Creston later in life. He enjoyed salmon fishing, with many trips to Skeena River. Don also enjoyed traveling south with his wife Betty for the winter. Don had the greatest sense of humour and was always ready with a joke. We will surely miss your jokes.
Don was predeceased by his first wife Lillian, second wife Betty, grandson Darell, sisters Eileen and Merle, brother Willie and parents Leroy and Adeline Golden.
Don will be lovingly remembered by children Larry Golden, Ben Golden, Adeline Simpson, Donna Bui, Lloyd (Raelynn) Golden, grandchildren Miranda (Marko), Jordan, David (Nicole), Sherian (Norman), Tanielle (Tash), and Hunter, great grandchildren Keira, Alex, and Onyx, sister Barbs (Rick) and his dog Ceasor.
