He leaves behind wife Rosemary, daughters Melissa (Cam), Ardeen (Grant), Adrienne (Steven), son Paul (Nancy) and grandchildren Christopher, Mitchell, Alyssa, Joel, Celeste, Gordon, Paul and Alize. Doug is predeceased by his mother Gertrude, father Fredrick, sisters Lois and Arleen, and brothers Teddy and Thomas. He also leaves many nieces and nephews.
