Obituary of Donald Joseph James Swayze

Swayze, Donald Joseph James (Don), 53, Dunnville, passed away early in the morning on March 6, 2019. Don is survived by loving wife Kerry; sons Kyle (Ashley) and Jordan (Sierra); step-children Rebecca (Mark), Elizabeth (Matthew) and Jason; and grandchildren Talia and William. Don was predeceased by grandson Damian.


Don has been a volunteer with Therapy Tails Ontario, bringing joy and puppy hugs to those needing them most. He was a lover of nature, enjoying few things more than taking his dogs for walks, hunting and fishing with his boys, riding his motorcycle, and drinking wine in the hottub. Don was known to his friends for his big heart, sharp sense of humour, and lack of filter. His warm hugs and easy laugh will be missed by all.


A private service will be held for Don. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donations to Therapy Tails Ontario. Donations can be made online ( or mailed to Therapy Tails Ontario, 376 First Ave, Welland, ON, L3C 5Y9.
