Ramsay "Don" MacDonald Segur

In loving memory of Ramsay MacDonald (Don) Segur

October 29, 1924 – September 26, 2012

Married to Joan Frances Segur (nee Cutler) for 60 years

Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-grandfather, Sports Fan and Fisherman

Don will be missed by his wife Joan, sister Delphine Carrell; children Trudy (Mike) Skands, Patti (Randy) Turner, Laurie (Ed) Mannings, Joanne Segur, and Don Segur; grand children, Jennifer (Andrew), Jeff (Diana), Jacqueline (Eric), Nicole, Lee, Jason, Michelle, Jamie, Sam and Andrea;  great-grandchildren Jeremy, Justin, Reese, and Karsyn; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his brother Vincent (Billy) Segur.

Don was born in Golden to Marjorie and Bill Segur.  He grew up in Revelstoke and was always busy with his sister Delphine at the Revelstoke YMCA.  In high school he was a “Call Boy” for the CPR.  He joined the Air Force at the age of 17 and was sent overseas. Upon his return he worked as a plumber for Stuart Burridge.  He moved with his wife Joan and family to Nelson in 1958 where he worked with CP Rail and West Kootenay Power as a plumber and pipefitter.

Don was an especially kind and generous man with a dry sense of humor that was enjoyed by everyone.  He was an athlete, enjoying gymnastics, baseball, basketball and ski jumping and was an exceptionally passionate fisherman. He rarely missed a game on t.v., and over the years he coached gymnastics and rowing. Watching his children and grandchildren play sports was high on his list of priorities.

Don’s family would like to thank Dr. J. Noiles, for his many years of friendship and exceptional care, and the staff of Mountain Lakes, in Falcon Ridge Cottage, for their abundance of loving care and incredible support over the past 4 months.
