Funeral service held Friday for Dr. Donald Stephens
Family requested memorial donations to three local groups including P.E.I. Ground Search and Rescue
A funeral service was held Friday afternoon for Dr. Donald Stephens, who was found dead in Bonshaw two days after he was reported missing after failing to return from a run.
The service for Stephens, 65, of Stratford, P.E.I., was at Central Christian Church.
Stephens is survived by his wife of 44 years, Angela, a son, Zachary and daughter, Joanna, their spouses and two grandchildren.
Stephens practiced family medicine for 25 years and worked in the operating room at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown.
His obituary said his greatest joy in life was his family and that he had spent many happy hours trail running.
"Above all else, Don was a man of profound faith," it read.
The family requested donations in Stephens' memory be made to the P.E.I. Ground Search and Rescue, P.E.I. Chapter of Canadian Mental Health and the Central Christian Church refugee fund.
Police said an autopsy has been completed, but the results won't be released. His death is not considered suspicious.
