Mr. Ahrens you were my high school teacher at Delta High School in Hamilton, you were always a nice person and sorry for your family's loss. To Matt you walked into our grocery store one day looking for a p/t job and spoke to me, after talking with you I hired you on the spot. I lost track of you later on as I retired. You said to me that day you wanted to work and then told me who your dad was, I just returned a favor for what your Dad did for me at Delta. One funny story, your dad was my teacher in grade 11 and at Christmas exams I failed his course terribly. I got 27 out of 100 on the exam and when your Dad asked if anybody thought that he had not marked them right, I put up my hand and he said Smith you are not going to pass no matter what. I said I needed 3 more marks as 30 sounded better than 27. Your Dad's response was you got them. My condolences to you and your family.

My uncle don was the kind of man that could make you feel special without trying and let you know you were loved just for being you
he was a warm smile and a generous hug and am a lucky girl to have called him my uncle 💕

I have so many fond memories of hanging out as a girl and teenager at The Ahrens' house in Burlington, with Don a constant figure there.
I loved his very dry humour and will never forget him introducing me to large jugs of 'real' maple syrup and huge blocks of strong cheddar cheese! I though it was fantastic!! His dry wit still couldn't hide his 'soft' inside - I had many wonderful conversations with him over the years and will miss seeing him.
My deepest sympathies to Linda, Kim, Colleen, Karl and Matthew and the extended family.
Love, Brenda
BT

Lieber Don, Es war ein Vergnügen, dich so lange als Schwager zu kennen. Ich denke jetzt an die vielen "regen" Diskussionen, die wir hatten, woraus ich immer etwas gelernt habe. Danke für die Erinnerungen.
Barry und Jean.
