Another sapper gone  :salute:

As most are aware Don Duplisea has been quietly battling cancer for the last few months. Don passed away this morning on his terms with family by his side. There are few Engineers alive today who have not had some type of contact with him, he will be truly missed.

(From his daughters post this am)
My father loved nothing more than his wife and family, the water and his 44 years of service to this country. Early this morning we said goodbye as he went on his own terms with courage and valour. Rest in peace Major Don Duplisea...Dad. Chimo!!"
