GLOBA, DonaldPosted: May 14th, 2018
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Donald Peter Globa on April 26, 2018. Don was born on June 25, 1951 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He attended St. Michael’s Elementary School, St. Paul’s High School, and graduated from E.D. Freehan High School. Throughout his life, Don’s two great passions were music and football.
After playing for his high school team and later with the Saskatoon Hilltops, there was more football at the University of Saskatchewan where he also obtained a degree in Music Education, enabling him to share his passion for music with hundreds of students across his stellar career in both concert and jazz band. Don was recognized nationally on several occasions for guiding his band students to the top levels in the country.
After retiring as a full time teacher, he continued teaching part time for several years and enjoyed that immensely. His love of football also carried on with completed dedication to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. His support for the Riders never wavered as he followed every game, play by play.
Don was an avid reader, and always seemed to have at least one book on the go. In between reading he would try to catch up on T.V. series he had recorded. Cooking was another past time he truly enjoyed in his retirement, often trying new recipes he found on the internet. Summer time gave him the chance to pursue fishing in the beautiful rivers and streams of southern Alberta, an activity he thoroughly enjoyed.
Don was predeceased by his parents, Peter and Anne Globa, and his wife, Pamela Perry-Globa. He leaves behind his faithful companion, Jake, the latest of the many dogs who were lucky enough to have had Don as their owner. Don’s friendliness, generosity and sense of humor will be missed. He was one of a kind, who lived life large and enriched the lives of those who had the privilege to know him.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lethbridge and District Humane Society.
