It is with unbearably heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our rock, Doug McCarthy on August 21, 2019. Loving husband of Kathy (Nee MacKie), devoted father of Kevin & Heather. Pre-deceased by his father Wilf McCarthy & mother Lillian Knowles (Tomlinson). Doug’s culinary prowess and passion as a gardener ensured our environment was a welcoming and beautiful home. We will miss & love him forever. The family will receive friends at the Doolittle Chapel of Carson Funeral Homes, 54 Coldwater St. E., Orillia, (705) 326-3595, on Thursday August 29, 2019 from 10 am until the time of service in the chapel at 11 o’clock. A reception with light refreshments will follow at the funeral home. Following the reception all are welcome back to Doug and Kathy’s home for a reception and walk through Doug’s beloved gardens which he loved so very much.
If desired memorial donations may be made to The Scott Mission or a charity of your choice and are greatly appreciated. The family would appreciate you sharing any memories of Doug with us on this site or by email. Reading such memories brings us great comfort.
