The Legg family sadly announces the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather Douglas William Legg, Jr. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. Doug is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Torild; his children Mike (Cathy), Prince George BC; Vicky (Ben), Kelowna BC; Debbie (Troy) Montrose BC; Jenny (Jamie) Kitimat BC; and Donnie (Teresa), Kitimat BC; and seven grandchildren, Brett, Kaitlyn, Alexis, Trenton, Tiahna, Drew and Joshua. Doug is also survived by his brother Robert, as well as many nephews, neices and many other extended family members. He was predeceased by his father and mother Douglas and Lillian, his sister Judy and his two sons Ronald and Richard.
The Legg family would like to extend a sincere heartfelt thank you to Ben and Donna Schwarz and family, Dr. Wahl, Dr. West, Sylvia De Sousa, and the home care nursing team of Barb, Elaine, Gloria, and Lucille. Torlid would like to thank her co-workers for their love and generosity.
There are no words I can say to you that express my love and gratitude for you being here during this difficult time. There is no way Dad and I would have gotten through this without your love, support, caring, and nursing experience. It meant the world to Dad and I that he was able to stay at home.
A celebration of Doug’s life was held on Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 2:00 pm at
