1947 ~ 2013
The family wishes to announce the passing of our dear brother, husband, and father, Doug Grant, at St. Joseph’s Hospital on June 8th, 2013. He will be sorely missed by his wife Linda, son Darren, mother Ruth (father Tom, deceased), brothers Dick, David (Nicole), Tom (Holly), Robert (Marilee), Robin, Don (Lisa), and sisters Carolyn (Gary) and Margaret (Mike), as well as all his nieces and nephews.
Doug was born in Edmonton in 1947, the third of nine children. It was in Edmonton where he met Linda, the love of his life. Doug and Linda moved to Comox in 1973 and were overjoyed at the birth of their son Darren in 1975. Doug apprenticed as an electrician in the Valley and operated the popular firm of Doug’s Electric, serving many Comox Valley contractors. In 2000, Doug, Linda, and their son Darren opened their family computer business in downtown Courtenay, where Doug met many new friends. He enjoyed time with his family, golfing, and watching the Canucks.
A celebration of Doug’s life will be held at his brother Tom’s on Saturday, June 15 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. 3337 Crown Isle Drive – the 2nd Crown Isle Drive off Royal Vista Way. Everyone wishing to join us is welcome.
