KULCSAR - Donald's family is sad to announce his sudden passing on September 20th, 2019 at the Regina General Hospital in Regina. He was 72 years of age. Donald was born on January 27th, 1947 to Joseph and Evelyn (nee Reiger) Kulcsar in Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. Donald grew up on the family farm located north of Grayson, Saskatchewan where he attended school near the family farm. Donald was also an altar boy at the Kaposvar Church located near Esterhazy during his younger years. On November 2, 1968 he was united in marriage to Diane (nee Edwards) in Dauphin, Manitoba. Shortly after they moved to Thompson, Manitoba and Donald began working at the mines in the community. After the birth of their first child in 1971 they moved back to Dauphin where Donald began working for the City of Dauphin, Manitoba as a backhoe operator and then later on working for a marine dealership. The year later they were blessed with their second child. Later on Donald and his family moved to Esterhazy, Saskatchewan where he started up his own automotive repair business. Donald became very well known in the area because of his family roots and with his new found business, he was also a very active member in the local stock car racing association where he held the position of President for the years he was involved. Donald made one more final move to Yorkton, Saskatchewan where he made this his permanent home. He had gone back to school to complete his GED and obtained his boilers certificate where he began his new career as a maintenance caretaker for the Yorkton Housing Authority. Donald spent his remaining years with his new love Shirley Cole on their acreage tending to their horses spending time showing them at trail rides. Together they spent much time camping and fishing. After moving to the acreage he developed a mutual passion with Shirley for the farm animals. Together they both loved the company of their horses and attending many trail rides around the province. Over the years they cared and loved many animals on the farm such as dogs, cats, the horses. miniature horses, donkey and a goat. Donald had an attachment to each and every one of them.
Donald had enjoyed spending time with his sons and grandchildren, he loved to entertain people with his many musical talents such as playing guitar, accordion, keyboard and singing. He was known to travel to local towns where he played his accordion and entertained many people in those areas. In his younger years he enjoyed waterskiing, a sport he passed on to his sons where he spent many hours at the lake towing them behind the boat. Donald also enjoyed snowmobiling with his sons, playing cards, hunting and cooking. Donald also became a great fan of the Riders and made sure he didn't miss a game on tv. Over the years Donald developed many personal relationships with people around the community and became well known. Donald was always willing to lend a hand to those in need. Donald was predeceased by his father Joseph and mother Evelyn; wife Diane (separated); and by brothers, Andy, Joe, Rick and Frank.
