Doug was born in Halifax, N.S., moved to Sidney, B.C as a ‘service brat’ and then spent from 1974 onwards living in the Comox Valley. Doug started at Field’s Sawmill back when he was 16 years old and was there till the mill shut down.

Doug enjoyed a good day fishing, a great camping trip to any lake on the island, campfires and a good steak on the BBQ any time of the year.

Doug leaves behind many extended family as well as many friends he has met over the years.

Doug’s unique sense of humour and his wonderful boisterous laugh will be remembered in the hearts and memories in all those that knew and loved him.

Doug’s family wish to extend sincere thanks to Andree of Home Care Nursing as he truly appreciated your way with his care. To the care aides, especially Dave as you ‘got the job done’. The Livingroom Pharmacy for all the home deliveries. Neighbour Kevin, dear friend & lunch-goer Brenda, and mechanic/friend Ken. You made his last months that much easier.

There will be a private family service.
