Don F. Woodbridge passed away with his family by his side on June 10, 2012 at the age of 77 years. Don will be remembered by his loving wife Marion Woodbridge, daughters: Kenzie Woodbridge, Kolyn (Ben) Morcombe, grandchildren: Seren Woodbridge, Tavis Morcombe, brother: David (Esther) Woodbridge and mother-in-law; Alwyn Burniston. Sadly predeceased by his parents: Bill and Gwyneth. Don was a creative and patient educator for 28 years. He taught in small communities in rural BC., including Golden, where he met and married his wife, Marion and where they started their family. They moved to Summerland in 1983 to take over the family orchard and home. Don was a vital, social person, who loved nothing better then a good conversation with friends both new as well as old. He was a storyteller, a family historian, a generous provider, a patient, gentle loving parent and husband. He found contentment in the physical work he did in the orchard and chopping firewood. Don loved the colour blue. Wearing blue at his memorial service would truly be an honour to him. A Memorial Service was held from the Summerland Baptist Church, 10318 Elliott Street, Summerland, BC., with Pastor Larry Schram officiating. Memorial tributes in Don’s memory may be made to the HHT Foundation International, Inc. P.O. Box 329 Monkton, MD 21111 USA. (
