Douglas John Smith
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas John Smith. He passed away peacefully surrounded by those he loved on June 1, 2022 at McKenney Creek Hospice in Maple Ridge. After a 7-year long battle with cancer he is finally at peace.
Doug was predeceased by his parents John and Doris, and 16 years ago he lost his wife MaryBeth.
He is survived by his children Dennis (Charlene), Lance and Tom, and is loved by his grandchildren Grayson, Hayden and Mary.
He spent many of his last years with Jeanne who he adored with all his heart.
Doug worked as an educational assistant for the Burnaby school district and showed so much love and dedication to the children he worked with. All of us who knew Doug knew that he loved those children like they were his own and would do anything for them.
Our family is so happy that Doug was lucky enough to be surrounded by so many friends that loved and supported him throughout his illness. All of you filled his days with love and laughter.
Thank you all for your friendship throughout the years and for all the happiness you brought Doug.
"That's All Folks!"
