My sincere condolences to Liz, Terri, Todd and the Sampson family
Forever in our hearts-
Mr. Donald Sampson born May 19th, 1939 in St. John, New Brunswick, pre deceased by his parents William, and Elizabeth(Bessie) Sampson, of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
He is survived by his children: Elizabeth Nickason (Carl), Terri Sampson (Lee). His grandchildren: Dylan Jones (Lynsey) Eve Jones, Luke Jones (Jaylin), Travis Ames, Jack Nickason, Brittany Fuglsang and Great Grandchildren Sophia, Halden and Freya and many other family and friends.
Don was a retired businessman. He owned and operated Carl’s office supply in Kirkland Lake, Ontario for over 30+ years. He was a black belt in Shorin-ryu karate, and even spent a year living and training in Okinawa, Japan. He obtained his private pilot license through the Air Cadet program in Kirkland Lake. He enjoyed many years flying his Ultra Light Challenger, which he built himself. Some of his fondest memories were in his airplane, playing snooker, or card games with friends and family. He is known by many as the creator of his board game: Composite Index.
Don was loved, and will be dearly missed by many for his contributions to the community. In his words, he lived a great life, and was ready to see what the other side had for him. He passed peacefully, at the Kirkland Lake and District Hopsital on May 3rd, with friends and family by his side.
Family has chosen to have a private gathering to celebrate his life.
