HALE, Donald Albert

It`s with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Donald Albert Hale (aka The Mayor of Marten River) on July 7, 2017 in his 79th year.  Loving father to Larry (Rose), Geoffrey (Kerry) and Tracey.  Proud Grandfather to Connor, Courtney, Craig, Katie, Erin and Kevin.  Don was a Jockey for many years winning many prestigious races and later went on to be the Manager of the Jockey`s Benefit Association until he retired.  Despite having a severe stroke over 4 years ago, Don never lost his sense of humour and put a smile on everyone’s face that he met.  A private memorial will be held for Don at his home on Marten River.  Donations in Don`s honour can be made to the Heart and Stoke Foundation or The Canadian Cancer Society.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca

Peaceful Transition Inc. has been a part of Barrie and the surrounding community since 1995. In that time, we have grown to become an easy alternative to the traditional full-service funeral homes. We provide simple options for cremation and burial at a fraction of the cost. There are two types of funeral establishments governed by the Board of Funeral Service in Ontario, Full Service Funeral Homes and Transfer Services. While Peaceful Transition Inc. is classified as a Transfer Service, we provide almost all of the same services as a funeral home without the need of their involvement and at a much lower cost. We specialize in keeping things simple which means no extras or added costs and personalized care, respect and service for both the deceased and your family. Our purpose is not to pressure you into purchases that you don’t require.
