The Globe and Mail (Ottawa/Quebec Edition) - - BIRTH AND DEATH NOTICES -

Jan­uary 13, 1934 No­vem­ber 7, 2018

Dad passed away peace­fully and un­ex­pect­edly on No­vem­ber 7, 2018. We are grate­ful for the sup­port and lov­ing kind­ness of the Pal­lia­tive Care team at the Michael Gar­ron Hos­pi­tal (Toronto East Gen­eral) whose ac­tions re­flected how he lived his life. Dad was born in 1934 to Nor­man Gra­ham Leishman and Iso­bel Lons­dale Clemes, as well as a brother to John. He was a true Toronto boy who grew up in Moore Park, at­tended UCC and lived in Lea­side for over 50 years! Lov­ing hus­band to Mary Sarah Anne Rae. Dy­namo Dad to Gra­ham Leishman (Kate) and Nancy Mag­wood (Tim). Grampa Don/Papa to six for­tu­nate grand­kids - Ryan, Mar­shall, So­phie, An­nie, Zac and Grant. Don was a true lover of Mother Na­ture whether it was pad­dling a ca­noe in Temagami, swim­ming in Geor­gian Bay, fish­ing in the French River, ski­ing with his pals in Colling­wood, play­ing ten­nis with any and all, or strolling the streets of Lea­side... al­ways wear­ing his con­ta­gious smile. Don was a gen­tle, kind and creative soul who had a pos­i­tive im­pact on ev­ery­one around him. He will be dearly missed, but his heart will for­ever be beat­ing in ours... Friends are wel­come to join us in a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life to be held at York­min­ster Park Bap­tist Church (1585 Yonge Street) Fri­day, No­vem­ber 16th at 1:30 p.m., fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion in the church.
