Duncan George Napier
After battling cancer and Early-Onset Alzheimer’s, it is time to celebrate the life of Dr. Duncan George Napier. Duncan lived his life to the fullest. He was a permanent fixture on the North Shore Mountains as an avid mountain biker and hiker. Duncan was also a humble, brilliant scientist, triathlete, dad, friend, and husband. Duncan grew up in Singapore and moved to Toronto, ON with his family in the 1980s before settling down in Vancouver, BC in the 1990s. His drive and passion for knowledge carried him through a bachelor’s in chemistry from the University of Waterloo, a master’s in computer science from McMaster University, a doctorate in theoretical chemistry from the University of British Columbia, and a master’s in business administration from Simon Fraser University. Duncan will be remembered for his intelligence, kindness, and devotion to his family. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Skyelar Anne Napier; his two children, Macleod Duncan Napier and Sophia Ruth (Napier) Livingstone; and his beloved dogs, Toby and Lucy. To honour Duncan's memory, please make a donation to either Paul's Club or the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.
