Obituary of Don Cochran

Donald Wayne Cochran passed away peacefully on July 31, 2023 at the Saskatoon Convalescent Home.  He passed while holding the hand of his loving wife, Louise.  A beloved husband, father and friend to everyone he met. He was an honest and caring individual who never met a stranger.

They raised their children in Saskatoon and later moved to North Battleford, Turtle Lake and eventually settled in Radisson.  During his senior years, Don enjoyed wood working and visiting with friends often hosting dinner at their home.  Don was well known for his engaging smile and always being a gentleman.
