LOW, Donald Walter
January 18, 1923 – December 29, 2013
Don Low was born in Elbow, SK, to William and Bertha Low, the 6th of nine children. In 1937 the family moved to Aldergrove, B.C., where he completed his high school, and entered the work force as a bank clerk in down town Vancouver. Shortly after, he was conscripted into the armed forces, and served overseas during WW11, at a Canadian Army Hospital in Great Britain. Prior to leaving Canada, at age 19, he met and fell in love with Harriet Ackersviller of Stratford, ON. Their long-distance romance continued for the duration of the war, and they were married in 1947 and moved to Vancouver where they raised their two children, David and Sharon. During these years Don worked in several capacities, finally becoming a realtor in 1959, – a position which he proudly held until age 90. Along with his brother Ray, he developed and established the creation resort of Sunshine Valley.
Don was well known for his outgoing personality, sense of humour and most of all by his delight in knowing Jesus Christ as his personal saviour and his desire to share this message with others. Don was predeceased by his first wife, Harriet, and is survived by his wife Joyce, son David (Dorothy) and daughter Sharon, four grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
He was also predeceased by his two sisters and two brothers, and is survived by brothers; Bill, Maurice and Norman (Ray), and his sister Margaret Lungren. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
The Memorial Service is open to all, and will be held Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 2 pm, at Valley View Funeral Home, 14660-72 Ave, Surrey, B.C.
