Doug accomplished much through his life and was particularly proud of watching his kids grow and achieve their goals.

Celebrating Josh’s wins, learning from losses, and being present for his sport and leadership award recognitions. Doug was also proud of his two daughters, Emily and Maria, for their success in their chosen academic studies, and reflecting the value of hard work and independence that was modelled and instilled by him.
Doug loved golfing, travelling, cooking, camping, being outdoors, and laughing with his friends and family. He also enjoyed the history channel and reading sports autobiographies. Doug’s most memorable vacation was the family’s most recent vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 2018, where they got to go fishing, swimming, and spend time in the sun. They got to walk the Marina, sharing some drinks, treats, and spending true quality time together. Doug will be remembered for his sense of humour and his love for his family.
