Obituary for Daryl Gerard McDonald

McDonald, Daryl Gerard
June 24,1959 – August 24, 2023

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Daryl Gerard McDonald on the 24th of August, 2023. Pre deceased by his parents Kent & Gwen McDonald. Daryl leaves behind his wife of over 40 years, Michèle (nee Cayouette). He was a proud father to Kristin, Danièle (Frank) and Shawna (John). Loving brother to Miles (Susan), Gregor (Rena), Donald (Susan) and Kenneth (Brenda). Daryl will be missed most of all by his grandsons Jackson, Elliot and Jamie. He leaves behind many friends and extended family.

Daryl was raised in a family of boys and, like all those boys, had his head and heart handed to him by his family of girls. A perennial doer, Daryl was out of place without a project and a bag of tools. His 30 years of work on the St. Lawrence Seaway culminated in the introduction and installation of the first hands free mooring system at the locks of the Welland Canal.

As per his wishes, cremation has taken place. If desired, memorial donations may be made to The Red Cross.
