Friday, July 12, 2019I remember Doug as a great fellow that enjoyed the coffee chats we had on Sundays. Our Model A Owners members, are divided into regional Chapters around southern Ontario. The "East Toronto" group in which he and about half a dozen other members, would meet up at the Hwy 401 & Victoria Park Wendy's on Sunday afternoons. We'd share story's about our "A" issues, trips, and other interesting topics that needed to be kicked around a bit. Best of all was we would share some interesting topics about what we did away from the hobby. That's when Doug would bring up his "cottage projects and boats". Now that was interesting. Doug's fondness of "doing something" included his Model T Ford and the Model A Ford. He was very meticulous in making sure they were tuned up and ready to tour. At our monthly meetings, when he wasn't lost in his summer adventures, he'd chat with everyone, and bring up a point or two during our meeting. The gents and ladies will miss him dearly, especially the Toronto East-end A'ers. My personal experiences, with Doug, were limited to the Clubs activities, which was interesting in that he had a gift of making a conversation that much more exciting. He left me with a sense of admiration, and respect, which enriched our time together as friends, in the hobby. We will miss him, and I do hope his legacy lasts forever. Our condolences from the Model 'A' Owners of Canada, may he rest in peace. Michelle and I offer our prayers to his family, friends and those that shared time with him. God Bless.

Wednesday, May 22, 2019As I mentioned to Anne, Doug was the keeper of useful knowledge, I could always walk next door and find out anything I needed to know to fix something, or could count on his help. I also did a few jobs for Doug. He will be missed. Jim

There will be so many things he built and designed to keep him present in your lives, and his quiet strength in your memories to sustain you. Wishing you comfort and peace, Shirley

Friday, May 17, 2019Doug will be sadly missed in the Muskoka cottage neighbourhood. I was thinking about an evening at the fire when Doug went to fetch his guitar and played anything and everything. Until that day, I never knew he even played. This is a wonderful tribute to Doug describing his interests and accomplishments with the family and people that he has enriched.
