August 23, 1946 – March 9, 2023
In loving memory ~
Don Lester (76) of Merritt, B.C., passed away suddenly on March 9, 2023, in Vernon after a brief illness.
He was born in Penticton to Richard Armstrong and Grace (Tuck) and moved to Quesnel as a young man where he met and married Linda Willson. After moving to Princeton, Don and Linda had two sons, Micheal and Josh. Eventually, after becoming a Millwright, Don moved to Kitimat and worked for Alcan for several years until retiring happily to Merritt.
Don loved spending time with family and friends – camping, fishing, playing cards, and travelling the world with Linda, as well as finding every opportunity to make others laugh. He was also a member of the Elks, and a Mason in Nicola Lodge 53 (Merritt, B.C.).
He was a loving husband and father and loved his grandchildren dearly. He will be sadly missed by his wife Linda, sons; Mike and Josh, grandchildren (Taia, Kaelan, Max, Isla, and Svea), as well as his brother Bob, sister Nancy, and many great friends.
