Donald James Miedema

January 15, 1962 - August 27, 2021

After a short, hard fought battle with cancer and with a heavy heart, we announce the passing of Donald James Miedema. Don was 59 years of age when he passed. Born January 15th, 1962 – August 27th, 2021. Don was the husband of almost 21 years to Geraldine Miedema (DeVries) and father of three sons – Brian, John and Nathan. He is the son of James and Anne Miedema and son-in-law of Sylvia DeVries. He is the brother of Sandra Hoekstra (Tim Mitchell), Jake Miedema (Tammy), and Jane deWal (Hotze). He is the brother-in-law of Annette Bruneau (Ray), Art DeVries (Jackie), Rick DeVries, Cynthia White (Duncan) and Yvonne Dulmage (Dan). He is pre-deceased by his nephew Christopher, with whom he had a special bond. There are also many nieces and nephews and their children who will miss funny Uncle Don. He will be missed by all. Don was a kind man, always willing to lend a hand when help was needed. He was a wonderful husband and great dad. He loved his family and was very proud of them. He was impulsive and fun and sometimes very Dutch-like in his determination. Don was a farmer – it wasn’t just what he did, it was who he was. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday , September 25th, 2021 at Lake to Skyview Farm, 160 McLean Road, Cobourg, Ontario. It will be a casual drop in from 1 – 4 pm. Come celebrate the life of Don. Add a story or raise a toast. Don was worth it and deserves to be remembered. Covid restrictions in place where needed. If desired donations may be made to Northumberland Hills Hospital Cancer Clinic.
