We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue NorthumberlandObituaries.com.

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support NorthumberlandObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please contact us !

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

BRYAN, Douglas Glenn - May 8, 1938 - May 3, 2018 - At age 79, of Cobourg, Ontario, passed away, Thursday, May 3, 2018 at his home.

Douglas was born May 8, 1938 in Mindemoya, Ontario on the Manitoulin Island to George and Hazel Bryan. He graduated from Sudbury Mining and Technical School in 1955, and almost immediately took on the world as an entrepreneur by buying a corner store and gas station in Naughton, Ontario with his partner in this great adventure, Simone.

Next, it was on to Chapleau, Ontario to try their hands at the crazy life of owning and operating a motel and restaurant in the Great White North. In 1976, Doug & Simone took their growing children down south and settled in Cobourg, where life flourished for everyone.  Doug was a hard-working man who could put his hand to almost anything that needed to be fixed or built. He enjoyed traveling, gardening, but most of all, his greatest pleasure was breaking bread with family around the table.

Douglas is survived by the love of his life, wife Simone; his son Glenn Bryan and soon-to-be-son-in-law Chuck Cawthorn of Calgary, Alberta; his daughter Janet Catton, son-in-law Craig Catton, and his bright-shining stars, granddaughters Meaghan and Sarah Catton of Cobourg; his sister Marian Brydges, his brother Daniel Bryan, his brother-in-law Will Mahu, his sisters-in-law Shirley Hill and Lois Morris and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Hazel, and his brothers Ronald and Eugene.

Friends and Family may call to visit at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, Cobourg from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Sunday, May 6.  The funeral service will be held at 11:00 am on Monday, May 7 at Trinity United Church, 284 Division Street, Cobourg.

Memorials may be made to Trinity United Church, or the charity of your choice.
