Don Wakeham

May 1, 1963 – March 16, 2023

Passed suddenly, but peacefully away at his home in Freshwater on March 16, 2023 at the age of 59 years.

Predeceased by the love of his life Madeline Wakeham (Duke) in 2009, his parents Frank and Florence Wakeham, as well as brothers Frankie and Dave Wakeham.

Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories his sisters Mary Keefe (Dan), Shirley Hefford (Doug), Bern Williams (Gerry), Maureen Forward (Chris), Ag Ezekiel (Johnny), and Linda O’Keefe (Ben); his brothers Fred (Brenda), John (Jeannie), and Shawn (Denise); also a large circle of nieces, nephews and relatives.

Everyone who knew Don loved him.  He always looked forward to a game of cards and crib at the Fountain.  He also loved a night in the country with the boys, and he was an avid sports fan. Go Blackhawks Go!

Don was very fortunate to have a large number of friends who went above and beyond for him; especially Ferg Manning, Jason Manning, Paul Maher, Julianna Kerrivan, Ernie Kelly, and too many more to mention. 

Don lived his life to the fullest and he is now reunited with Maddy.  

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Maher’s Funeral Home, Placentia.  Visitation to take place on Saturday, March 18th from 7pm to 9pm and Sunday, March 19th from 2pm to 5pm & 7pm to 9pm.

Mass of Christian Burial to take place 10:30am on Monday, March 20th at Holy Rosary Church, Freshwater. Interment to follow at Dermot McGettigan Memorial Cemetery, Southeast Placentia.

Let’s not be sad that he’s gone,
but celebrate the great life he lived.
