    Doug was an amazing man he always had a smile on his face and a story to tell. I met Doug while I was fund raising for the Arthritis Society ,Doug was my trainer ,he had his own struggles and ailments but came out every week to lead us on our walks. It was a pleasure to know Doug may he rest in peace.

    Wayne Mitchell, and family;
    So sorry to see your Dad passed away, both Julie and myself worked with Doug at Woodwards in Coquitlam, such a gentleman, always had a smile no matter how early in the morning he was coming in, I enjoyed my early morning visits with him at the store entrance as I opened up for staff, he always had some wisdom to pass onto me. Many years after Woodwards we would run into him on one of his many walks uptown, he always took the time to chat with us. Sorry for your loss, sincerely, Don and Julie Mackenzie (MRSS ’79)
