Donald Zettler Obituary

Don Francis Zettler (19/04/1943-12/08/2022) 
Our family lost a huge part of our heart on Friday August 12th, 2022. Don passed away peacefully listening to his favourite music, with his family by his side. Don is lovingly remembered by his daughter Fonda Zettler, son in-law Chris Rawlings, neice Mary Bonifazi, nephew John Zettler, former spouse and friend Ann Zettler and grandchildren Lucas and Shawnee Tracey. 

Don served in the Canadian Navy on the Boniventure from 1961-1964. He travelled from port to port and was able to play basketball all over the world. He loved to tell stories of his adventures and all the friends he made along the way. 

Don now gets to spend his days eating all the treats he wants and cheering on the Leafs and Blue Jays from above. Our papa may have left this world, but we know he will always be our #1 fan looking down on us. 

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday August 27th in Little Britain, Ontario. If you wish to make a donation in Don's name we ask that you direct it to Palliative Care Ross Memorial, Jays Care Toronto Blue Jays or MLSE launchpad foundation (Toronto Raptors and Toronto Maple Leafs).

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Donald Francis Zettler?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor Donald's memory.


You can still show your support by sending flowers directly to the family
