The family would like to thank Dr. Van Schalkwyk, ER Doctors and all the nurses at KGH for their caring attention and kindness.
Doug’s quiet strength, sense of humour and enjoyment of simple pleasures in life will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. At his request, there will be no service.
He would be honoured by a donation to Kitimat Palliative Care, Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
