<div itemprop="description">Donnie &ldquo;Beever&rdquo; Uhersky, age 72 years, passed away peacefully at Regina General Hospital on Saturday, May 17, 2014 surrounded by his family. <br /> <br />Don will be lovingly remembered by his wife Dorothy &ldquo;Faye&rdquo;; four children: Darcy (Tammy), Kelly (Lori), Michele (Brent), and Cathy (Randy); nine grandchildren: Jason, Melissa, Jessica, Danny, Landyn, Haley, Rylan, Lauren and Julia; great granddaughter Abigail; one sister; four brothers; and mother-in-law Mabel Gorrill. <br /> <br />Don was one of nine children born in Crane Valley, SK, but grew up in Bulyea, SK. <br /> <br />As a young man, Donnie was often called a busy beever, therefore the nickname &ldquo;Beever&rdquo; stayed. <br /> <br />Don went to SIAST early in his career and received his Journeyman Electrician. In 1974, he started his own business, Beever&rsquo;s Electric. Don enjoyed the construction industry and made many friends along his journey. He enjoyed entertaining, dancing, spending time with his grandchildren, going for Dim Sum, camping, making sausage and getting together with friends to play cards. <br /> <br />Living with kidney disease for approx. 10 years, Donnie endured dialysis for the last 8 years of his life, and never complained about the numerous doctors&rsquo; visits, medical tests, pills and needle pokes. <br /> <br />We would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Stewart McMillan and his wife Cheryl for all of their care and support over the years. <br /> <br />The family would also like to thank the staff of the RGH Renal Unit for all the years of care and dedication. Special thanks to the staff of MICU who cared for Donnie during his final days. <br /> <br />A MEMORIAL SERVICE will be held on Friday, May 23, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at Broadway United Church, 105 Broadway Avenue, Regina, SK.
