<div itemprop="description">It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, son, brother and brother-in-law, Donald Timothy Jonker, on Sunday March 27th at the age of 49 at home. <br />He was predeceased by his father, Nicholas Jonker. He is survived by his mother, Donna (Klein) Jonker; siblings Robert Jonker and Joann Banfield; daughters Holly, Amanda and Meagan, (mother Maria Farias Jonker) and many extended family members and friends too many to mention but all dear to his heart. <br />Donald was born on November 29, 1966 in Brantford, Ontario. He grew up in Brampton but enjoyed many trips to his family&rsquo;s cottage in Penetang. He married his first love in 1989 and they started their family in Midland. His daughters were his pride and joy. Moving to Winnipeg in 2000 to work at his Uncle&rsquo;s manufacturing facility was a new adventure, but Brampton was always home, and he returned there in 2005.<br />Donald will always be remembered as being bigger than life, if only in physique and for his courage during difficult times, and even though he took his life we know he is at rest (without pain) now. <br />The funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 9. Visitation from 1-2pm, followed by a memorial service at 2. Reception will follow. The family request that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association.<br /></div>
