Donald Stewart Sutherland, 73, of Sudbury, Ontario, passed away on May 16, 2024 after a prolonged illness.

Don was born on June 17, 1950 to Muriel & William Sutherland. During high school Don trained and worked as a paramedic. After a few years, he went to Toronto to apprentice as a Mechanic. Later, to move out of that heavy labour position, he educated himself in computers as an A+ Certified Service Technician at Cambrian College and enjoyed working and tinkering with computers and electronics in his spare time.

In 1980 he married Cecile Paquette and they enjoyed 43 happy years together.

He is survived by his daughter, Aurora Sutherland-Pearson (Doug) from a previous marriage and his grandson Logan Pearson.

Don was predeceased by his parents Muriel & William and his older brother Gary. He is survived by his siblings Carl, Linda, David, and Kevin.

To follow Don’s wishes, there is no service planned. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The Canadian Pain Society and please share memories of Don on our memorial website.
