Flight Sgt. Don McEvoy gives life
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Benard McEvoy, Glenelg St. W., LCI graduate and popular Lindsay and Oshawa boy
Official word has been received by Mr. and Mrs. Benard McEvoy, Glenelg St. W., of the death of their son, Flt. Sgt. Donald Ralph McEvoy in air operations over Germany.
Flt. Sgt. McEvoy was reported missing on June 18.
A well-known and popular Lindsay boy with a wide circle of friends here, Donald McEvoy graduated from the Lindsay Collegiate Institute and Baker Business College, later accepting a position with General Motors in Oshawa.
Answering the call to duty he joined the RCAF and in August 1943 went overseas. He had four enemy aircraft to his credit and was awarded membership in the famous Caterpillar Club following a four mile parachute jump over England in which he sustained a fractured ankle.
In a letter to his family from his Commanding Officer it is revealed that he had been recommended for the DFM and that his Commission as a Pilot Officer had recently come through.
In addition to his parents, Flt. Sgt. McEvoy is survived by one sister Mrs. Ross Curtis (Dorothy) of Oshawa.
