Doug passed away peacefully with his family by his side at 79 years of age in Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm.
Doug was predeceased by his oldest brother, Charlie. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Janice; children, Carrie (Calvin) Callihoo, Rhonda (Ken) Kicia, Shane (Tanya) Daughton; as well as 12 grandchildren and 5 ½ great-grandchildren.
Doug was born and raised in the Christopher Lake, SK area with four brothers and one sister. He raised his family while working at the pulp mill in Hinton, AB for 34 years. Doug lived all of his retirement years in his home at Sunny Brae on the Shuswap Lake.
During his retirement Doug took great pleasure in having his family and friends gather in his home and yard to play and visit. He enjoyed his almost daily visits to the local restaurant to “solve the world’s problems” with his buddies.
Many thanks to Dr. Bell, Doug’s physician for 20 years.
