Doug/Dad/Uncle/Grandpa/Great Grandpa was a loving caring man who would drive any of his five teenage children, friends in tow, wherever they needed to be. He was a man who liked to help people whenever he could and will be greatly missed by so many. His career was with INCO, and we remember how difficult that was during many strikes. Providing for his wife and five children had their challenges during those difficult times, however his family always came first. He took us on many memorable family vacations that we will always cherish. 

As per Doug’s wishes, the family will have a bonfire in his honour to celebrate his life. We love you and miss you already dad. Services entrusted to Simple Wishes of the North, Sudbury.
