So sad to hear of Donies passing.he was in our live for quite a few years and always had a smile on his face. Our condolences to the Alcock family…Don will be missed..

Our sincere condolences to the Alcock Family. It was such a shock to see the obit this morning. Our fondest memories of Don come from a trip we took together to Europe in 1977. He had such a great outlook and added so much to everyone’s experience.

I was shocked when I heard of Donny’s passing. I worked with Donny at Memorial Stadium with hockey and concerts. He was always a barrel of laughs. I was trying to get in touch with him lately through facebook recently but I couldn’t find him.
My condolences to the Alcock family.

May your family find solace from the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. He promised that in the Paradise life will be a delight, more than we can imagine. (Psalm 37:11, 29) He will even resurrect our loved ones like Don. Until then, trust that in due season, Jehovah God heals the brokenhearted and he binds up their wounds. Wishing you the strength you need in the days ahead.

Our condolences to the Alcock family.
We lived on Lake Avenue and I met Donny working concerts and with The St. John’s Maple Leafs…
