It is with sadness we announce the passing of our beloved father, peacefully at his home following a long, well lived life.
Doug leaves behind his 3 sons – Ronald, Leonard and Robert and joins his son Christopher (deceased). His 3 daughters-in-law – Susan, Carol and Dawn. His 9 grandchildren – Ashley, David, Ryan, Daena, Chris, Alex, Miles, Maya and Faye and his 3 great-grandchildren Kieren, Cohin and Roman.
Born and raised in Regina, Doug married (January 26, 1957) his dear wife Lois (deceased) and moved to Edmonton to work and raise their 4 boys. Doug was a “larger than life” person and had many, many dear friends of all ages throughout his life. We will all miss his “snappy patter”, his passion for planes, cars, ships and puzzles, his self-effacing manner, his courage, determination and his friendship.
A gathering will be held on September 22, 2018 at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery at 12:30 p.m., followed by a Celebration of Life at The Bend Lounge in Riverbend, 14743 40 Ave NW, Edmonton, from 2 – 5 p.m.
Cremation has taken place.
