It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Donald Edward Cargill, beloved husband of Margaret Cargill of Blairmore. Donald was called to be with our Lord on May 20, 2020 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre after a courageous and valiant battle with cancer. He was blessed with 65 years of a full and meaningful life.
Donald was born in Blairmore, AB on December 28, 1954 to proud parents, Donald Sr. and Eileen Cargill. Along with his siblings, he was raised in a warm, nurturing home and grew to be a kind, hard-working and compassionate gentleman. Donald won the heart of a lovely young lady, Margaret Braun, and they were married on August 23, 1997. The happy couple was blessed with wonderful daughter whom they cherished.
Donald enjoyed tinkering on vehicles, tending to his yard work and precious time with his family. Donald enjoyed the simpler things in life, visiting with friends and family, the reward of a good day’s work, a smile from his beloved wife and a warm hug from his daughter. He will be greatly missed but fondly remembered by all who knew him.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life include his wife, Margaret Cargill of Blairmore; daughter, Tapanga (Michael Kenney) Cargill of Lethbridge; sisters, Geri (Ed) Michalski, Davina (Rudy) Pagnucco and Heather Runge all of Hillcrest; brothers-in-law, Bill Braun of Grand Prairie and Peter (Lisa) Braun of Coaldale; sisters-in-law, Tena (Don) Quiring of Calgary and Ann (Martin) Harder of Taber; mother-in-law, Tena Bloudoff of Coaldale; and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Donald Sr. and Eileen Cargill.
