Donald Logan Bishop
1933 - 2022

Bishop, Donald Logan (1933 - 2022)

Donald Logan Bishop est décédé paisiblement dans la maison de Magog de sa bien-aimée, le samedi 20 août 2022, à l’âge de 89 ans. Quatrième enfant de John Murphy Bishop et Jessie Logan de Montréal, il sera pleuré par plusieurs générations dont sa tendre épouse Dre Catherine Milne, ses filles Allison (Rick Lamont) et Leith (Glen Watson), ses petits-enfants Shea Duffy (Amy Kitz), Trevor Duffy (Magalie Forget) et Hayley Bishop (Sam Burgess), ainsi que son arrière-petite-fille Elodie Bishop Duffy; sa sœur aînée Jane Landry (Jim Schissler), ses belles-sœurs Suzanne Boomer Bishop et Jean Milne, ses chers neveux et nièces, et son ex-épouse Gloria. Sa famille ressent toujours la perte de ses frères aînés John et Allan.

Connu en tant que Donny par ses meilleurs amis, Big Don par ses petits-enfants, il était un grand conteur et un homme d’un magnétisme exceptionnel. Depuis son tout jeune âge, Don était un skieur passionné et membre du Red Bird Ski Club. Gradué des Universités Sir George Williams (maintenant Concordia) et McGill, ses première années de carrière l’ont amené dans différents pays méditerranéens et asiatiques pour Charles E. Frosst and Maso Imports, et plus tard, à Montréal au sein des entreprises familiales manufacturières d’accessoires et à titre de président de Depot Cle inc.

Bénévole impliqué, talentueux artisan, boulanger, pêcheur à la mouche, athlète né, tous ses loisirs lui procuraient autant de plaisir que de défis. Champion mondial de course de dériveurs 14 pieds International avec son équipier Ian Bruce, il fut également un membre fidèle du Yacht-Club Royal Saint-Laurent. Passionné de programmes de voile pour enfants, il a développé et promu avec Ian, des bateaux  autant pour le plaisir des novices que pour les défis des marins expérimentés. Naviguer avec Catherine sur le Lac Champlain et ailleurs, pêcher le saumon, faisaient partie de ses vacances préférées.

Don a défié la mort à plusieurs occasions, dont lors d’un naufrage dans le triangle des Bermudes au cours duquel il a remis son âge à 0. Il aurait donc eu 29 ans.

Au cours des derniers mois, Donald, non seulement a reçu des soins extraordinaires de Catherine, mais s’est réjoui à la seule vue des oiseaux dans les mangeoires, de la lumière baignant la maison, et de ses souvenirs d’une vie pleinement vécue.

Ses proches lui rendront hommage dans un avenir rapproché. Des dons en sa mémoire peuvent être faits à: Memphremagog Wetlands Fdn , 98 chemin Southiere, Magog. QC, J1X 0P1; ou à Memphremagog Conservation Inc., 51 Cabana, Magog, Qc, J1X 2C4

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Donald Logan Bishop, died peacefully on Saturday, August 20, 2022, at his beloved home in Magog, Quebec, at the age of 89. Fourth child of John Murphy Bishop and Jessie Logan of Montreal, he is mourned across generations by his loving wife Dr. Catherine Milne, his daughters Allison (Rick Lamont) and Leith (Glen Watson), grandchildren Shea Duffy (Amy Kitz), Trevor Duffy (Magalie Forget) and Hayley Bishop (Sam Burgess), his great-granddaughter Elodie Bishop Duffy; his older sister Jane Landry (Jim Schissler), sisters-in-law Suzanne Boomer Bishop and Jean Milne, his loving nephews and nieces, and his former wife, Gloria. The family continues to feel the recent losses of his older brothers John and Allan.

Known as Donny to his closest friends, Big Don to his grandchildren, he was a man of extraordinary charm and a great raconteur. From a young age, Don was an avid skier and member of the Red Birds Ski Club. He was educated at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia) and McGill. His early business career took him to countries in the Mediterranean and Asia for Charles E. Frosst and Maso Imports, and then closer to home in Montreal with the family-owned Accessories Manufacturers and as President of Depot Cle Inc.

A committed community volunteer, skilled craftsman, bread maker, fly fisherman, natural athlete and vegetable gardener, he embraced pastimes that were equal parts challenge and pleasure. Don was a world champion sailor of 14-ft International Dinghies with his skipper Ian Bruce and he was a long-time member of the Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club. He was passionate about sailing programs for children and, with Ian, developed and promoted boats that were fun for novices and could thrill experienced sailors. His favourite vacations were spent with Catherine sailing on Lake Champlain and beyond, and salmon fishing.

Don thwarted death on several occasions, most notably during a shipwreck in the Bermuda triangle, at which point he began counting his age from one. By this new count, he would be 29.

In recent months, Donald received extraordinary care from Catherine and had great joy in simple things, the birds at their feeders, his light-filled home, and a life fully lived.

The family will be arranging a remembrance in the coming months. Donations in Donald’s memory can be made to: Memphremagog Wetlands Fdn , 98 chemin Southiere, Magog. QC, J1X 0P1; or Memphremagog Conservation Inc.  51 Cabana, Magog, Qc, J1X 2C4.

Messages de condoléances aux parents et amis

Dear Cathy, I am so sorry for your loss. Be well.   —  Patricia Gorman
Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. We certainly have many fond memories of you and Don at the Mecatina.   —  Norman & Merlyn
Don Bishop has Sailed Away. I cherish the memories of sailing my boat , Eagle III from Lake Champlain east on the St. Lawrence River and on to Maine. We visited many harbours and I have many fabulous memories with Cathy and Don on this trip. Twenty nine years ago, on Nov 22nd, after five stormy winter days , 400 miles of Puerto Rico, our boat Early Byrd, built by her captain, Ian Bruce, was hit by a rogue wave at 03:00. She was rolled over three times down the front of the wave. She came upright with her mast and all safety rails torn away. At sun rise, Don took a serious risk and positioned himself at the bow of the boat in order to spread the red spinnaker on the water in order to increase our visibility for any overhead aircraft. This was what the Coast Guard Rescue Plane spotted the next morning. Thanks Don. You are often present in my sea-going stories to my grandkids.   —  Don McTavish
