Donald Percy Greenstreet
September 11, 1933 – May 17, 2022
It is with our deepest sadness that our father, grandfather, and friend passed away in his sleep, after a short battle with pneumonia and lung cancer. Donald met his wife Muriel in Vancouver in 1953, and they shared a wonderful life for 63 yrs. Donald retired early from truck driving to care for his late wife for 20 yrs. He spent his last years living with his daughter Carolyn, spending time with family and friends enjoying good food and laughter.
Donald came to Canada in 1950 from Ashford Kent England, for a better life after growing up during the war.
Through the years, Donald traveled across Canada, and moved the family to various places, but finally retired back in Kamloops. Donald worked for CN Telecommunications, Midcontinent Supply and Arrow Transport. He and his wife managed various apartment buildings over the years.
Donald loved golf, fishing and camping at Hyas lake. He always helped out his neighbors and enjoyed growing a garden. He loved his family, and was proud of his granddaughters, as they brought great joy to his life. He loved watching Celtic Thunder music videos and loved singing along. In his final hours, Brenda and Carolyn played music for him. Donald will be missed by his daughter Carolyn Tytor, son Tyler Greenstreet, daughter in law Brenda Greenstreet, granddaughters Danielle Greenstreet and Nicole Greenstreet and close friends The Austins and The McKenzies.
