Donald (Don) John Schwartz

October 21, 1965 - April 22, 2020


October 21, 1965 – April 22, 2020


Don will be remembered by his wife Brenda, daughter Samantha (Don) and grandchildren Noah and Isabelle. Also remembering Don are his dad George, brothers David (Gitta), Dale (Ru), his nieces, nephews and their families, many aunts, uncles and cousins.  He was predeceased by his mother Joyce in June 2019.

Growing up in the St. Vital area meant playing football for the Mustangs. Don’s

love for the game and talent as a running back lead him to be part of the provincial all-star team. Summers as a young boy were spent with his family camping and touring parts of Canada and the USA.

In March of 2000 Don met Brenda and the camping continued with their daughter Samantha. These times were spent fishing and sitting around the campfire loudly discussing whose music to listen to. Don usually won!

Don was so proud to be a grampa to Noah and Isabelle. He was looking forward to teaching his little buddy Noah how to fish this summer. As both kids got older, he was excited to be able to play with his electric car set, playing with Lego and dancing with Isabelle.

We have gained a lifetime of wonderful memories because we shared this path with Don. He was not with us for a long time but a good time.

Brenda would like to thank all of the First Responders, the Winnipeg Police and all others that tended to Don and helped her during this difficult situation. You are an amazing group.
