Donald C. Prior passed away peacefully on March 29, 2022 at his home in Lundbreck, Alberta.
Don was born in Jersey Harbour, Newfoundland on September 26, 1952 to Isaac and Winnifred (Strowbridge) Prior. Don spent many years in the scallop fishery of Nova Scotia before going back to school in his 50s to become a heavy equipment operator. In 2007, Don moved to Alberta and shortly afterward began working at Teck Resources. After he retired, Don started pursuing passions such as walking, gardening and playing crib. Don had a pure love of nature and delighted in being outdoors. He had a strong faith and through it, met many caring people who became a big part of his spiritual and everyday life. Don had a great curiosity about learning and seeing new things. He was a master problem-solver, and loved to laugh. He tried to understand a world that sometimes made no sense to him.
Don is survived by sons Clayton and Chris; brothers John, Reg and Bob; sister Nancy; as well as grandchildren Caleb, Chantelle, Aura and Quinton.
