After a long struggle with cancer, Alex Don Wayne (Don) Mackie, born November 9, 1944, passed away peacefully with his family at his side on Wednesday, July 3rd at the age of 79.

Loving father of daughter, Angie Mackie (Gordon Muschett) and son, Donald (Keith) Mackie (Donna Mackie). He so loved and cherished his granddaughters, Cierra Fasken and Jacey Mackie. Loving brother of his siblings, Russell Mackie(deceased) (Mary), Bruce Mackie (Marie), Shirley Kitchener (Norm) and Lynda Warren (Jim deceased), Joanna (Bonnie) Kesimaat. His passing will be deeply felt by many nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Don lost his beloved wife Shirley (nee Peesker) in 2020. He missed her terribly. They shared a wonderful life together in Puslinch, Ontario. It is hard to imagine Puslinch without Don. For years, he was a leader of the Puslinch Softball Association as a coach, umpire and convenor. As a member of the Puslinch Optimist Club he helped to raise funds for the building of the Puslinch Community Centre. In his spare time, he loved to fish, hunt and make maple syrup.

There were many fisherman tales spun throughout the years and revisited with dozens of visitors who came to see him these last few weeks. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Don & Shirley’s Life will be held at Puslinch Community Centre, 23 Brock Rd. S., Puslinch, on Sunday, July 14, 2024 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. Words of memories will commence at 2:30 p.m. Please sign the Tribute Wall at kitchingsteepeandludwig.com
