I have known Doug for over 35 years, we lost contact for a while but I am sure glad we reconnected, he was my assistant manager at a food warehouse in Calgary.
I cannot begin to tell you the laughs we had at work and at the hockey games we attended, he was always up for a laugh and a genuine guy to be around and always had a entrepreneurial spirit.
May god take care of you Doug as you deserve it.
Love ya Dooogy R I P

So sorry to hear of Doug's passing. My condolences to his family and friends near and far. He was so much fun when he and I rode ponies, our feet would almost be dragging on the ground, and Russ riding between us on a normal sized horse. Doug is riding in the wind, R.I.P my friend.
