It is with great sadness that I write, the passing of Don is a great loss to the communities that he belonged to. Don was respected, diligent, caring, kind and giving person. He leaves behind an example of his life lifting, helping and giving to others. His light of giving will never go dim, may his soul rest in peace, may angels always surround him.

No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that your loved one (DON PANOS) is now resting but not forgotten, for he is still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Prayers and fond memories are what we have to remember our dearly departed. May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days, my most heartfelt condolences

Don was a true and generous friend of the Jamaican Canadian Association; he will not easily be forgotten by those of us who dealt with him. May his family be comforted by memories of this good man; and may he rest in peace.

Please accept our sincere condolences from all of us at Shear Display.

We had the pleasure of working with Don for many years through his involvement with the St Clair Gardens BIA. His enthusiasm and dedication to this role and his genuine interest in serving his community was truly to be admired.

He will surely be missed by all that had the experience of working with him.

My thoughts and prayers to all.

It was with shock and disbelief that I read of Don's passing this morning. As a comparatively recent volunteer member of the BIA my acquaintance with Don was short but the impression he made was huge. His energy, enthusiasm and commitment to his community was evident in everything he said and did. Don's leadership and tireless efforts in creating change for an area and people where he had spent a great deal of his life and loved are greatly appreciated and admired. People who are prepared to lead and give of themselves are a rare commodity and Don was a rare commodity. His cheery welcoming smile and laugh will be greatly missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones at this time. We will always remember your smile and waves from across the street. You will be missed.

I have known Don for about 12 years. We volunteered together on the board of St. Clair Gardens BIA. Don was a fighter, he fought for our area. I could not ask for a better leader. So much has happened because of him. Development has finally started in the area and now he's gone. My condolences go out to his family whom he loved so much.
