Donald Frank Schuster

December 4, 1934 – October 24, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Don Schuster. Don was born in Armstrong BC, the son of Michael and Margaret Schuster.
Don was a journeyman machinist and millwright. These professions brought Don to Golden in the early 1960’s to work at various sawmills. Don’s love of hiking and skiing soon had him exploring Hospital Creek. He built two cabins there over thirty years so he could enjoy the outdoors. Don and his friends climbed many mountains in the Golden area. He also put his hand to gold panning in Canyon and Quartz creeks.
Don leaves behind his sister Elsie Friebe in Prince George and three nephews; Charles Friebe, Jonathon Hirota and Matthew Hirota. He was predeceased by his sisters Gladys Hirota and Shirley Schuster. Don also leaves behind his many friends in Golden. He will be remembered for his quiet, gentle nature.
A funeral service for Don was held on November 8 at Trinity Lutheran Church with internment at the Golden cemetery.
