It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Irvine Donald Sweetapple on May 6, 2022. Don was born on June 23, 1943 in Glovertown, Newfoundland. He was the son of the late Thomas and Frances (Snow) Sweetapple.

He also leaves to mourn six grandchildren – Zach, Jaclyn, Hilary, Chris, Alex, Clara and a baby Sweetapple on the way.

Don is also survived by siblings Rupert (Carol) Sweetapple of Cornwall PE, Doug (Lynda) Sweetapple of Halifax NS and Hollis (Vera) Sweetapple of Corner Brook NF, in addition to many nieces and nephews spread across Canada. Along with both parents, Don was predeceased by his sister, Violet Neville, and brothers Thomas Sweetapple and Edgar Sweetapple.

Don dedicated his life to his passion as a CMA and worked up until the time he passed. He will be fondly remembered by all who loved him for his sense of humor and fun-loving spirit. He loved spending summers at his cottage in Rocky Point, PE and his winters with his Sun City West, Arizona family.
