Doug graduated from Saint John Vocational School in 1955. In
1958 he married his high school sweetheart, Joan (Raymond) Brenton,

health. Doug and Joan had three children: Joanne Regina (died in
infancy); Kristy Hardy (sons, Michael and Kristofer) of St. Margaret’s
Bay, NS; and Michael Brenton (wife Michelle, son Douglas and daughter
Brooke) of Hampton, NB.
Shortly after high school Doug began work with the CNR in

Until recent years Doug enjoyed golfing, fishing and
vegetable gardening from spring to fall. He was an avid hunter all his
life. Doug was a long time member and ardent supporter of the Adanac
Association, playing darts there on a weekly basis until the week
before his passing. Without doubt, though, working the
“Farm” in Kiersteadville, NB, always held a most special
place in his heart and soul.
Doug was predeceased by his parents, his step-father Vernon
Earle, his daughter Joanne, and his brother Stewart. In addition to
his wife, children and grandchildren, he is survived by his brother
Art (Fran) of Ottawa, ON, his cousin and long time friend John (Ivy)

lovingly remembered by all.
