Obituary of Donald James Proudlove

Donald “Don” James Proudlove passed away suddenly at home on January 26, 2024 at the age of 85.

Beloved husband of 63 years to Viola “Vi” (Cote). Father of Nancy Vermeire (Marc), David, and Julie Phillips (Jeff). Grandfather of Stacy Vermeire, Brian Vermeire (Alex Lesnikowski) and Cole Phillips (Tess Ruscica). Great-grandfather of Madisyn, Taylor, Dryden and Caroline. Special dad to Tammy Murray (deceased 2020) and Carol Enghardt (Tim) and their children Kristen (Nick Skyring) and their children Kenan, Reece and Aurora; and Sarah and Nick. Brother of the late Lorne Proudlove and survived by sister-in-law Sarah Proudlove (Hislop). Predeceased by his parents Bill and Beatrice (Bailey). Will be missed by many nieces, nephews and extended family members. Special family friend to Chuck and Cindy Firman.

Don started out as a mink rancher in high school, farmed cattle and hobby farmed, later selling farm equipment for 20 years then snowmobiles and then owned and operated Southco Trailers. “A deal is only good when a friend is made.” Don helped so many people over the years. The door was always open for someone needing a place to stay.
