On Sunday, December 29, 2019, Jesus greeted Donald “Don” F. Jacquier into heaven. There he was reunited with his daughter Donna, Grandson Chad, and brothers Robert and William. The grandest reunification is with his parents Francis and Ethel Jacquier.
He was a wonderful husband, dad, grandpa and great grandpa, brother and uncle, that will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him. Donald is survived by the love of his life Joyce, whom he created a life story with for the past 66 years. Together they raised three sons whom he shared his love of business adventures with and always had a story to tell. He is survived by sons, Raymond (Andrea) , Richard (Debbra) and Ronald (Debra) . Grandpa and Great Grandpa were among some of his favorite names to be called. He is survived by 11 Grandchildren and 21 Great Grandchildren spanning New York, Connecticut and Florida, places which were near and dear to his heart.

He enlisted in the Navy and spent his time on the USS Grand Canyon. After which he returned to Connecticut and college. While working in agricultural sales he met the love of his life, Joyce.

Eventually Don and Joyce opened Hill n’ Hollow Campground and poured their heart and souls into the land.
