He is also survived by his 2 brothers, his sister and their families. Doug was born February 1, 1947 in Winnipeg. He grew up in Inwood. Doug and Doreen knew each other almost all their lives as they began as pen pals as kids. They were married November 9, 1974 and were married for 45 years. Doug moved with his wife and children to Teulon in 1979, where he lived happily for the last 41 years. Doug worked at CP Rail for over 35 years. He retired in 2002 at the age of 55. Doug was a cowboy at heart. He could always be seen wearing his cowboy hat. He loved going to rodeos, watching old westerns and listening to his country music. Doug was a man of few words. He had a huge heart. Doug would go above and beyond to help anyone in need. He was such a gentle and kind soul. Doug will forever be loved and missed by his family and friends. Cremation will be taking place. Thank you to Ken Loehmer Funeral Services. As per family’s decision there will not be a service.
I will always be haunted by your death, but treasure the memories we shared. This world is darker without you. There's a hole in my heart that will never be healed. We miss you a great deal. Like the King of the Cowboys would say, "Happy Trails ... Till We Meet Again". RIP Dad
What a huge loss for you and your family Doreen. Doug was always such a quiet friendly gentle soul and always had a quick smile and a kind word. We will miss seeing him with you in town and also miss seeing his friendly face when he worked at the Teulon waste disposal. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and are sending huge hugs. Joel and Kelly and family
