Donald Colin Hollett, originally of Burin NL, passed peacefully away after a brief illness at 84 years old on Tuesday, April 28th, 2020.

Don was a highly active member of the community as former Mayor and Member of the House of Assembly for Burin and served on countless boards and committees throughout his life.  He was a great cook and wonderful storyteller. Don loved his family, his friends, a good chat, the sea, the land and politics. He will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to know and love him.

Don was predeceased by his parents Donald and May (Stevenson), sister Joan, brothers-in-law Brian Aylward and Jack Spencer, sister-in-law Florence Day and father-in-law Herbert Cluett.

Deeply mourning his loss are his loving wife of 61 years, Jean (Cluett), children Sandy (Brenda), Philip (Susan), and Susan (Adrian), grandchildren Alex (Steve), Matthew and Blake, Megan, Katie, Sam (and their mother Heather), step-grandchildren Kerry and Carly, great-grandchildren Max and Claire, step-great-grandchild Ross, sisters Judy (Boots), Gail, and Brenda (Bob), mother-in-law Louise Cluett, sister-in law-Gertie Spencer, brother-in-law Calvin Day and a large circle of nieces, nephews, cousins and their families, as well as many dear friends from far and wide.

Many thanks to the staff at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre ICU and Medicine Ward for their dedicated professional care.  He was always in good hands there.

Due to the current Public Health Advisory of COVID-19 a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  Cremation has taken place.
