Thursday, January 31, 2019Dear Margaret and family, I had the pleasure of working with Doug at Commerce for 8 years. He was a great leader of our history department, and I learned much about leadership, friendly and helpful, from him. I am saddened to hear of his passing, and, most of all, saddened for you, Margaret. At all times, you were an exemplary couple for us younger marrieds on staff. I am heartened, though, at having met you both at the Credit Union a couple of months ago. Having the fortune of speaking with both of you consoles me. To you, and your family, my deepest sympathies and love. Michael

Tuesday, January 29, 2019I have such wonderful and fond memories of Doug, at HSC, through Southminster United Church, and from wanderings through Old Ottawa South. I even remember dancing with him, to the great delight of other graduates, at a 1965 Graduation Party, held at my home on Ossington Avenue. Do you remember, Margaret? Doug was always smiling at school, in that warm and inviting way of his. Students were drawn to him, knowing he would be a soft place to fall when they needed to vent due to personal problems, their innermost heartaches ... which, with teenagers, were abundant. He never did NOT have the time or inclination; he was ALWAYS available. What a guy. You can tell what an impression he made, as that was ... 54 years ago and still clear as a bell to me. My parents are both gone now (Gordie and Jeannie) and my sister Sharyn died last February. Sharyn attended HSC six years after me and also spoke with affection of Doug, as did my parents. Margaret, I lost my husband in 2017, so I know what you are going through emotionally. But know this: in time, his memory will make you smile, not weep; in time, you will have daily conversations with him (and probably even lose a few arguments!); and, of course, in time we will all be reunited in our Father's house ... something I dearly look forward to. In the meantime, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, as are Steve, Brian, and their families. God Bless.

Tuesday, January 29, 2019I will always remember the day Doug kept me company making latkas while Margaret and Steven did their errands. It was a privilege to spend that time with him and hear him share his life's journey with me. Heartfelt condolences to Margaret and family, and especially that very special young person, Alyx.

Sunday, January 27, 2019I was a long-time substitute teacher at the High School of Commerce and Doug was one of the kindest people I know, always making a point of thanking me for filling in (though he rarely was away) and making me feel welcome at all times. We often discussed what was going on in our respective United Churches. My sincere sympathy goes to all his family.
Libby Yue posted a condolence
Sunday, January 27, 2019Shocked to see Doug's picture in the Citizen news. When your house sold, I wondered where you'd moved to. Will always remember the two of you as good, patient neighbours. Always a smile on your face when we talked from yard to yard. To you Margaret and the boys, I know there is an empty space in your lives but you can fill it with thoughts of the good man Doug was.

Mary Ann Kingsbury & Phyllis Esdon posted a condolence
Saturday, January 26, 2019Margaret Both Phyllis and I are very sad to know that Doug is gone. I received an email from him just last week, so we assume he didn't suffer and went quickly which is a blessing at our age. We both attended Teachers College with Doug and consider him a long time friend. We both enjoyed renewing that friendship with you and Doug after the Teachers reunion and at our annual reunion lunches, It is good that you are in Port Colbourne with friends, close to your cottage, and in comfortable apartment. I am glad of that for you Margaret. Please express our condolences to your two sons and your grandchildren. Mary Ann Kingsbury and Phyllis Esdon. IIhBRp IhBRp
