BRIDGTON, Maine — Donald (Don) J. Ineson, 91, of Southbury and Bridgton, passed away peacefully on January 22, 2021, at home in Bridgton, with his loving wife Ann and sons John and David by his side.

Don met his wife Ann shortly thereafter through a friendship with Ann’s brother and their common interest in cars. Don and Ann married and bought a house in Southbury, where they raised their two sons, John and David, and shared over 50 years of memories.
Don owned and operated a specialty products machine shop in Oakville, incorporated as Ineson Manufacturing in 1956. When Don and Ann were not working, they loved traveling together, with Switzerland holding a special place in their hearts.
After Don and Ann’s retirement, they relocated to Bridgton in 2008 and enjoyed their Maine life together, with family, friends and their three orange tabby cats. Don and Ann shared many happy miles of motorcycle riding in Connecticut and Maine.
