Donald Percy Plant

November 5, 1954 — March 27, 2024

London, Ontario

Suddenly but peacefully at University Hospital, London on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, Donald Percy Plant at the age of 69. Husband of 40 years to Shirley (“Binky”), father to Tyler (Kate), Travis (Missy), and grandfather to Maalik, River and Aubrey. Previously married to Debra Klippenstein, father to Melissa (Todd). Brother to Susan (Don), Jeff (Eugenia), Mark (Maryanne), and Tammy (Jerry). Loving uncle to many beloved nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Stanley and Violet, and siblings Ricky, Debbie, Linda, Jackie and Lori.
Donnie drove truck for 25 years, primarily for Inter-City Papers and Darling International, and loved every minute of it. He was a three-time cancer survivor, loving life for 23 years after his first diagnosis. Donnie always had a smile on his face, and was more than happy to talk to friends and strangers alike. He was a social butterfly who knew every dog in his apartment building, and even some of their owners! Donnie always put family first, and he was the centre of any family event. He was a great storyteller, and some of those stories were even true!
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.
