Donald James Iskov

13th March 1954 - 30th October 2023


Don passed away peacefully at Castlemaine Hospital on 30th October 2023 aged 69 years.

His pleasures were simple, his needs were few,
if his family was happy, he was too.
Rest peacefully Dad, in some place green,
some place nice, some place that's called Paradise.
Love from Scott, Matthew and Siobhan.

We will not think of you as gone as your journey has just begun. You are up there now with Wendy definitely having fun.....
Donny, your body failed you, but your warmth and wicked sense of humour never left you.
Thanks for being a fantastic brother in law xx
We will see you both on the flip side.
Love hugs and kisses Linda and Des

In loving memory of our Brother-in-Law Donny, loving father of Scott and Matthew.
“Many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true people will leave footprints in your heart.
This is what Donny left us, an indelible footprint of Love, Kindness, Friendship, Loyalty and Inspiration.”
Now in peace to join your loving wife, Wendy.
Always Gwenda and Brian
