Donny Myles

September 10, 1960 – January 27, 2021
Donald Edward Myles, lovingly known as Don and Donny to his friends and family, passed away peacefully at home on January 27, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Donny will be lovingly remembered by his sisters and their spouses: Debbie and Larry Gartner, Dee Myles and Ransey Volk, and Denise and Allan Raugust; his longtime girlfriend Donna Thompson; and his best buddy Bandit.; As well, his pride in his nieces and nephews was evident: Jennifer (Nansen), Brandon, Stephanie, Loni, Megan (Tyler), Skye (Clayton), Tiffany (Robert), Rodney (Danielle), Melissa (Jon), Ryan (Nicole); as well as 19 great nieces and nephews.
He was preceded by his father Arnold (Dick) Edward Myles (1983) and his mother Leilani Edythe Cumming (2015), as well as his brother Jimmy Myles.
Donny was born and raised in North Vancouver. There was no sport he did not enjoy playing, watching or coaching, especially baseball and fastball.
He was a dedicated man. He worked 25+ years at Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, a Millwright by trade, before moving to Ponoka where he gained a family during his time at Ponoka Fertilizer; his job until he passed.
If Donny wasn’t at the horse races or out at Calumet curing, he was at the Stampede grounds volunteering at the gate; always with a big grin wherever he was.
A special thanks to Dr. Halse, RimRam (Jamil) at Ponoka Professional Pharmacy and Ponoka Fertilizer for honouring our brother’s wishes.
Donny will be laid to rest in North Vancouver beside his Dad. Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings, a private family Funeral Service was held on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at 2 pm at the Ponoka Funeral Home. A recording of the service will remain on Donny’s obituary page ( for 90 days.
If you wish to make a donation, the Calumet Curling Club (Box 13, Site 10, R.R. 1 Ponoka, AB T4J 1R1) or the Ponoka F.C.S.S. Cancer Fund will graciously accept donations in Donny’s name.
