1 thought on “Wade, Donald Evan”

  1. We send our sincere sympathy to Leslie, Diane, Lisa, Donald and grandchildren Melody and Grant and sister Diane. We are fortunate to have known Don for more than 60 years as a wonderful friend as we shared memorable times together as couples and with our families. Don was a loving husband, kind and charitable. He was a great dad and outstanding grandfather who loved and cared for his family. He was dedicated in his work, sensible and had a good head on his shoulders. He was always ready to listen to others and volunteered in many areas. Don and Leslie shared a beautiful marriage of 59 years which all began when they married at St. Isaac Jogues Church in Hinsdale,IL as I attended as maid of honor. We recall the good times and memories of a life well-lived. We will miss him. We send our love, prayers and peace with sympathy, Marianne and Bill Thomas
