With great sadness the family of Donald Wheaton would like to announce his sudden passing on December 4, 2022 at the Kenneth E Spencer Memorial home, at the age of 67.
Born in Moncton Hospital in 1955 he was the son of the late Leslie (Todge) Wheaton, and mother Pauline (Taylor) Wheaton. He was predeceased by his son Douglas Wheaton.
Donnie was a big fan of music and in his younger years, an avid outdoorsman and had a love for nature and adventure. He could be seen on his bicycle, down by the brook fishing, or in the woods hunting. He has been a plant enthusiast all his life and in his later years he could be found fishing from his car.
He is survived by his children Donald Wheaton and Delbert Johnston of Moncton as well as six grandchildren.
He is also survived by his sister Nancy (Wheaton) Bannister, brother Dale Wheaton and sister-in-law Janie Wheaton, nieces, nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews.
He will be deeply missed by friends and family, especially his sister Nancy and his mother Pauline as they had a very special, close relationship.
A special thank you to all caregivers and nurses who took care of Donnie in his final years from the Moncton Hospital, the Sussex Hospital and the Kenneth E Spencer Memorial Home.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800). As per Donnie's wishes all arrangements will be held privately.
If desired , donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences and donations may be made at www.keirsteads.ca
