Obituary of Donald Hyde

HYDE- DONALD LESLIE died peacefully on July 21, 2018.  Son of the late Ray Hyde (2003) and Jean Hyde (2007). Loving father of James Hyde (Alyssa) of Oshawa and Devon Lyn Hyde (Glenn) of Scarborough, and grandfather to Katelyn and Connor.  He will be missed by his siblings, Charles (Cathy) of Barrie; Janice (Barry) of Thornhill, and Robert and Rae-Marie of Waterloo as well as his aunt and uncle and many cousins, nieces and nephews.  Don graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Civil Engineering) in May, 1974 and started his employment right away with CN where he remained until he retired in 2003.  Throughout his time with CN he was posted from coast to coast in Canada, until finishing his career in Edmonton. He was a loyal employee.  One of his proudest accomplishments was obtaining his Master of Business Administration from the University of Alberta in 1995. Both at work and in his academics, although considered a quiet individual, he was considered a respected leader and mentor.  Don was especially fond of driving and loved to go on road trips.  Music selection was always a key part of the planning for the trip limiting himself to ten cds so others could have their choices.  Sometime after he retired, he returned to live in Haliburton where he had spent his high school years, and later moved to Barrie.  Don was an avid reader and a collector of all types of music.  Many hours were spent on his computer researching books and music to share with his family.  Don was a strong individual who maintained his independence and sense of humor despite his disabilities from Rheumatoid Arthritis.  He will be remembered for his quick wit, and intelligent conversations.  Special thanks to the staff and nurses of 3West at Mill Creek Care Centre in Barrie for the extra special care that they provided to Don. Cremation has taken place. The Hyde family will receive visitors at the DAVIDSON FUNERAL HOME, 135 Clarence Street, Port Colborne on Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 12 noon until 2:00 p.m., followed by a Celebration of Life in the Davidson Chapel. Interment to follow at Oakwood Cemetery, Wainfleet.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Arthritis Society or charity of your choice if desired.
