We are devastated to hear of the passing of Dons fan Donald Brown from Melbourne, formerly of Bletchley. We spoke to Don shortly before Christmas who was telling us about what is was like to watch games in Australia, and he was planning to write a “Dons Fan Overseas” article which we were very much looking forward to.
A few days ago he was involved in a traffic accident that left him on a life support machine, very sadly he lost his battle.
We are indebted to Paul Steel for letting us know and forwarding on a message from Donald’s wife Katie.
Many Thanks to Steve Manning on Dons Worldwide for allowing us to reproduce some of this content.
Paul Steel – On behalf of Donald Brown’s family.
48 hours ago we as a page were informed a real loving MK Dons supporter from Australia was on life support.
Tonight I have been informed that Donald (Don) has sadly passed away.
Message from Katie Brown: – Gone, but never forgotten.
At 60 years old, we’ve lost our hero.
Don was the best Husband, Father, Grandfather, and friend you could ever ask for and our lives will never be the same.
Donny left this world on Tuesday 16th February with his family by his bedside and is now at peace and no longer in pain.
Sweet dreams my Darling Donny.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Katie, her family, and friends.
