    • Obituary

      We are saddened to announce that Donald "Dee" Lefurgey of 98 Tracey Avenue, Albany, died suddenly in the Prince County Hospital, Summerside, on Friday, April 6, 2007, after suffering from lung disease.

      Raised in P.E.I., he was a very good athlete when young and was a member of several P.E.I. and Maritime championship teams. His particular strength was baseball. Starting as bat-boy he continued to play and was part of several of the great "Curran & Briggs" teams of the 1940's and 50's.

      After leaving P.E.I., he spent many years in Nova Scotia where he was employed with the Department of Community Services. From 1970 until his retirement, he served both as Executive Director of Family and Children’s Services of Annapolis County as well as District Supervisor for the area.

      His fondness for people and his willingness to lend his aid to worthwhile projects gleaned for him a large network of friends. Upon his return to P.E.I., after retirement, he became involved with various activities and organizations. These included Parkinson’s, Toastmasters and the Summerside Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. He was tremendously honoured to be named Legionaire of the Year in 2006.

      He was predeceased by his parents, Katherine (Gordon) Lefurgey and Flight/Sgt Osborne Lefurgey, brother Robert and grandson Blake. Surviving are his wife Belinda, his brother Ross, son John (Linda), daughter Dawn (Derek), daughter Melinda (Tom) and daughter Julia (Dean). Also surviving are eight grandchildren: Sam, Ronnie, Luke, Brannen, Clarke, Esme, John and William.

      There will be no funeral or visitation by request. A reception in his honor, to be held at the Summerside Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, will take place on Tuesday, April 10th, from six until nine P.M. All relatives and friends are invited to attend.

      Donations in his memory may be made to the Prince County Hospital Foundation, The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #5, Summerside, or a charity of your choice.

      Completion of arrangements entrusted to the Moase Funeral Home, Summerside.
