Obituary of Donald Stephen Lamey
In addition to his loving wife of 37 years, Don is survived by his daughter, Kim Jones of Florenceville-Bristol; grandchildren, Maggie and Jack Jones of Florenceville-Bristol; children from his previous marriage, Carmen, Brad and Ryan; several other extended family members.
Don spent the majority of his life working in basically any position that struck his fancy at the time. He was truly a "Don"-of-all-trades and loved doing a variety of things and meeting new people. From working in car dealerships around the city in service and sales, to spending years working for the City of Fredericton and the Province of New Brunswick, time spent working at Costco talking to old friends and new, and selling all those great samples, and then back to his life-long love of driving for Enterprise, he never wanted to sit still for long.
July 4, 1978 Don found fellowship and sobriety through Alcoholics Anonymous. Over those 45 years, he helped scores of people on their own journeys in sobriety and in service he found friends and family. Every connection he made through the program he cherished and they all meant so much to him.
Later in life, Don and Karen found another fellowship at
Visitation will take place at York Funeral Home,
To laugh often and much; to win the respect
of the intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;
to know that one life has breathed easier
because you lived here.
This is to have succeeded.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
