DR. GREGORY DONALD (’73)
Submitted by his life-long Mount A pals Dave Wood (’71), Chris Meadows (’71), Bob Ward (’72), George Shaw (’73), Steve Trevor (’73, ’74), Dennis Bedard (’75), and David Henry (’74, ’75)
Greg passed away peacefully in July 2022 at his Moncton country home, surrounded by his loving family. Greg was a devoted husband to his dear wife Cindy, a very proud father of Nick, Kelly, and Gillian, a beaming grandfather to four grandkids, a big brother to Gaelyne (’75) and Gary, a dedicated and award-winning medical doctor, a Moncton community leader, a lifetime basketball player and long-time coach, a rugby player, an all-round sports enthusiast, an eternal optimist, a team player, an amateur gourmet, definitely a jester and entertainer, and our life-long Mount A buddy.
Greg was a multi-talented townie (…as all townies claim to be!) who always maintained a positive outlook on life and its many adventures. He loved sports and played basketball for four years under Laird McLennan (1969-73) and was a proud MtA team member that beat Acadia in his first year. He also loved rugby (especially the post-game parties) and played in Nova Scotia for many years.
Greg’s life plan on graduating from Mount A in 1973 was to become a medical doctor. With steely grit and determination, Greg graduated from Dalhousie Medical School (with George Shaw (’73)), where he met the love of his life, Cindy, and became a dedicated and celebrated doctor in Moncton (awarded New Brunswick Doctor of the Year in 2012).
Over the years, Greg enjoyed many adventures (…some that we can mention!) including a backpack trip through Europe in 1973 with George Shaw (’73) and David Henry (’74), where Greg often got lost; the 1976 Montreal Olympics again with George and David; to the Atlanta Georgia Olympics in 1996 with his family; and a special trip to the 2015 Rugby World Cup Championships in Cardiff, Wales, with Cindy and other friends, including Paul (’74) and Shelly Arsenault (’74).
His summer sport schedule always included a week of golf with his Mount A buddies, who, after a hard day on the PEI links, all bunked in at his Hampton Beach cottage to consume his gourmet appetizers (perhaps with a few beers) and recount tall tales.
Greg will be sadly missed by his family and friends. We will never forget our old Mount A buddy.
NB - Before his passing, Greg set up the Mount Allison Dr. Greg Donald “Heads Up” Bursary. We encourage his friends to donate at some point in the future.
Please note Dr. Greg Donald was included in the Fall 2022 Record In Memoriam.
