Donald Charles Souter

February 7, 1937 - March 26, 2014


Donald passed away on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook, BC with family by his side after a very long, courageous fight with cancer.

Donald was born in Hamilton, Ontario and as a teenager joined the RCAF.  He was a proud member for 21 years while travelling the world in various postings.

After retiring, Don worked as a policeman, security officer, gunsmith and finally was employed at a mine in the Arctic.  He remained there until ill health forced him into retirement once again.  This time, the Cranbrook-Wycliffe area would be his final home with his companion Delma.

Donald is survived by Delma Nelson and her family; his daughter Susanne (Mike) Udall, sons Brian (Chris) Dockal, Donald (Joanne) and grandchildren; Taylor, Aedan and Liam.  He is also survived by his sister Isabel Souter of Hamilton.  Don was predeceased by his mother, father and two brothers Robert and Norman.

There will be no service at Don’s request.  Condolences may be left for the family at  Any donations in Don’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 19 – 9th Ave. S., Cranbrook, BC  V1C 2L9.
