Donovan William Reese
August 8, 1941 – September 21, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donnie Reese on Saturday September 21st 2019 at the age of 78 years. Don was born in Kamloops and grew up in Sorrento. He accomplished a lot in his 78 years. He drove and owned numerous semi trucks and hauled logs, hay, gravel and salt. He built many log homes, owned a medic truck, and was a trapper and a big game guide. Don enjoyed camping fishing and his animals, and he was an avid reader.
He was loving and supportive father, grandpa, great grandpa and friend. We are beyond fortunate to have so many amazing memories with him.
His greatest love was for his wife of 54 years, Georgia. He adored and spoiled his three little dogs, whose ashes will be buried with him.
Very much feeling his loss are his wife Georgia, daughter Tonya Nelson (Rick), son Cork Reese (Joli), son Bill Reese (Carla), daughter Colleen Reese (Pat), 12 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, sister Beverley Reese, brother Jack Reese, mother-in-law Edna Moore and a very large extended family too numerous to mention.
Don was predeceased in death by his grandsons Jesse, Adam and Riley Kingdon in 1992, father Richard Reese in 1982, mother Myrtle Reese in 2009, brothers Richard Reese in 1959 and Larry Reese in 2019 and Father-in-law George Moore in 2010.
He will be laid to rest in Pineridge cemetery Merritt BC close to Jesse Adam and RileyPrint This Obituary & Condolences
