TOMCHICK, Donald H. - Passed away in Markham on January 7, 2023 in his 92nd year. Survived by his loving wife Joyce (nee Holland), his three children Robert, Alan and Patti and their spouses, his 6 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. Don grew up in Timmins, Ontario with his 5 siblings.

His mother Mary and father Albert Tomchick were well known in the Timmins community as owners of Albert’s Bakery. Don was very proud of his service as a young man in the Canadian Air Force. Over the years, he was a proud veteran who supported the Royal Canadian Legion.

A long-time resident of Cornwall, Don worked for many years as the publisher of the Cornwall Standard Freeholder. He was very proud and honoured about his many years of service to the Thomson Newspaper Company.

Don loved cottage life in Timmins over the years. He was an exceptionally skilled golfer and enjoyed curling for many years as well. Don had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening tremendously.

There will be no funeral, however, a celebration of life will take place a later date. To honour Don’s legacy and his love of the Legion, donations can be made to the Stouffville Legion Branch 459.
