Don Weagle passed away surrounded by his family on December 9, 2018 in the Halifax Infirmary at the age of 57. Don was born June 4, 1961 in Bridgewater, NS. He grew up in Baker Settlement and was the son the late Doran Weagle and Jean (Mansfield) Crouse. Along with his mother Don leaves to grieve his loving and devoted wife Wendy, the three joys of his life, sons Graeme, Scott and Craig, brother David (Elizabeth) Weagle, sisters, Susan Lyons and Sharon (Daren) Mailman, cousin Wayne Wentzell and his nieces and nephews Tammy, Joe, Candise, Christina, Andrew, Meghan, Steven and Kelly along with great nieces and great nephews and the Cooper family. Don also leaves behind many friends both new and old, including special friend Maya. Don was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and coach! His integrity, kindness and compassion made him a man who was loved and admired by many. Don worked diligently for his clients and equally as hard for the youth on his basketball teams. He loved spending his evenings and weekends coaching and mentoring. His passion shone bright and he was recognized with the Provincial Volunteer Award in 2017. Don made an impact on everyone he met and the void left behind will never be filled, but each of you that loved him can carry on his legacy by living as Don did!
A special thank you to the paramedics, doctors, nurses and night nurse Nancy on 7th floor all the people who visited, called and messaged. Funeral arrangements under the direction of the Ronald A.

So sorry to see the news of Don's passing. I worked with Don years ago at Boland's Limited in Lakeside. I admired him greatly. His love of Wendy was expressed with the warmth of his words. I cannot imagine how greatly he will be missed by his family and community. Sincere condolences, Lynn Bowden

Dear Wendy and Family,
I have never met you but I did know Don professionally quite well. I am a non resident who has a condo in Hubbards and Don handled my Canadian Tax affairs. He had done this since the early 2000s and at the beginning it was a voyage of exploration for both of us through the regulations.
I enjoyed an annual visit to him first in his office in your house and later in his office in the garden. It was a good opportunity to pick up on some of the business gossip and also talking about children and his passions.
I will miss these and his friendship.

Dear Wendy, Graeme, Scott, Craig,
May I begin by offering our most sincere condolences on the death of your dear husband and father.
We are not strangers to losing the mortal association of a spouse or loved ones near and dear to us.
Don and I were associated through his handling of the accounting for our company Deseret Home Improvements Limited.
We wanted to find someone who we felt had unquestioned integrity and would represent us in a professional manner.
We were not disappointed over the many years that Don afforded his services in any of these areas.
Don was kind, patient, and exacting. He worked with my wife Debbie who is now on the other side of the veil of this sojourn on earth as she was the bookkeeper for our Firm. As Debbie had no previous experience in this area, when questions or concerns arose Don would always gently review the needed steps to make corrections or confirm the validity of what was done.
Although we did not have an association outside of our business relationship, nevertheless Don Weagle's life bespoke well for his parentage, religious values and his adherence to high standards and practices. I am confident that the young people he worked with in the community of athletics were the recipients of more that the honing of athletic achievements but also of being blessed to have a role model to fashion their lives after.
Please know of the heartfelt nature of these comments that have no basis in flattery but rather is absolute truth.
It is my strong belief that death does not have the upper hand when our existence is considered in an eternal perspective. Surely the fact that life ceases with the death of a loved one makes reason stare. May you find solace, faith, hope and a sure witness that families are designed as forever institutions. In such a mindset it would be our prayer that as the days, weeks, months and years ahead role by that a sense of peace will be yours and that of your family spurring you onward and upward. May happiness find its way to you in challenge and may meaning remove the sting of separation as the victory over mortal death has been won long ago in the Atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
With our love and gratitude for a man of tremendous principle based stature,
Richard P. Moses
Deseret Home Improvements Limited
