Donald Douglas Creighton has "Gone Fishing”. This time he said he’s not coming back. He passed over to “God’s country”, the great Opeongo Lake in the sky where the lake trout jump right into your boat on Friday, May 22, 2020 at Hastings Manor in Bancroft, ON at the age of 93.

Father of Cheryll Harrison (Creighton), Cameron Creighton, Craig Creighton and his wife Sandy, Donna Creighton and Laureen Creighton.

Our condolences to Craig and the rest of the family. Don has been a family friend for the past 30 years. I have many memories of him coming over for tea and a treat at my dad's cottage and then at our home. Our kids knew there was always a popsicle in his freezer for them. We have missed his friendly face on the road. What a kind and generous man. We will miss you Don!

Don gave us lots of cherished moments, many filled with laughter, lots of story telling, sharing his memories of local history, hunting and fishing.
We remember his welcoming, cheerful, friendly conversation, learning how to swim and fish at his dock, living room visits, and so many more!
His fat cat emblem with a belly button on his wood working makes us smile.
He has touched our hearts in a lasting way.
Condolences to the family ❤️ Such a good man he was.
Rest In Peace Don, swimming in the wilds of Opeongo and beyond.
