Passing of 50 Year UA member Donald Erz

October 20, 2022

September 30th, 1946 – October 17th, 2022

Donald Gordon Erz, aged 76 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away on Monday, October 17th, 2022.  He was predeceased by his parents, Buster and Lillian; sisters, June (Roy) and Lucy (George); brother-in-law, Brian; and parents-in-law, Bob and Audrey Whitehead.  Don is survived by his wife, Gloria; son, Clark; grandsons: Jaxson, Nolan (mother, Jennifer), and Cosmo (mother, Dannielle); brother, Bob (Susan); sisters: Linda, Brenda (Rob) and their families; sister-in-law, Bev (Lori); and brothers-in-law: Brian (Lori), Kelly (Donna), Todd (Nicolle), and their families.  

Don was born in Moose Jaw and worked as a Tinsmith.  He was an avid bowler, enjoyed going fishing and camping, collected coins, stamps and die-cast cars, and made yard ornaments.  Family was important to Don and spending time with his grandchildren meant a lot to him, especially the time spent making Lego creations together.

Thank you to Dr. Hetherington, as well as the staff of the Allan Blair Cancer Centre and Home Care.

In keeping with Don’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held at a later date.  As an expression of sympathy, donations in Don’s name may be made to the Allan Blair Cancer Centre, c/o Pasqua Hospital, 4101 Dewdney Ave, Regina, SK S4T 7T1.
