REGNIER, Donel Lawrence June 3, 1944 – Feb. 26, 2009
Don went to be with his Lord on February 26, 2009 after a brave and courageous battle with cancer. For many years, Don was a bus driver for the Abbotsford School District. He will also be remembered by many children as ‘Choo-Choo’ The Clown, as hundreds of children giggled and smiled as they rode his miniature clown train during many local festivals and annual children’s activities. His son Glenn characterizes him as a very heartfelt man who always put people first before himself and was openly giving. He was a tremendous and loving father/grandfather who will be greatly missed by his family, especially his two special grandchildren, Travis and Holly: “We love you so much Papa Don.”
A special thank you to the caring staff and wonderful volunteers at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission for giving Don the very best of care. As per Don’s request, there will be no service.
